As a wrap up to our series on mental health, The Mainstream asked UCC students to share what they do to help relieve the stress and anxiety that comes from attending college during a pandemic. Within a few hours of putting out a request for information, many students sent us ideas and photos of their mental health tips. Besides trying to help students reduce stress, our goal was to help the student body see that we are not alone, even though so many students have had to transition to online or remote learning options.
