Wellness Resources from UC: Helping our community stay strong

leaping gymnastThis has been a year of many challenges — the pandemic, political and racial turmoil, natural disasters and more. Our community has come together and demonstrated resilience — but doing so is a skill set that can always use some nurturing. That’s why staff at many UC locations have built and compiled tools, articles and videos for promoting resilience during this trying time. Let’s stay stronger together.

Need a little more support? All UC health plans offer behavioral health benefits — including telehealth services. And, free counseling is available to all staff through local Faculty and Staff Assistance Programs.
