Virtual Resources for Wellbeing

The coronavirus is affecting our lives in significant ways. It’s hard to make sense of how this global crisis is impacting so many people, our personal lives, and student experiences. Heightened stress, worry, isolation, and grief are normal feelings shared by many in the BU community.

Supporting your wellbeing is essential during this challenging time. BU is here for you, no matter where you may be. The Wellbeing Project has compiled a list of BU resources to help you navigate this unsettling time. All of these are available online to students.
