The Wellness Zoom provides an opportunity to gather at noon for a live zoom to engage in a different 15-minute wellness activity focused on reducing stress and improving wellbeing. You may join at https://amherstcollege.zoom.us/j/969215732. Open to students, staff and faculty. You are welcome to engage in conversation or chat or simply listen in.
The quick shift to remote learning and working at home has presented many members of our community with the realities of returning to contexts that can be difficult and challenging. Home/housing away from campus can present issues navigating identity, complicated relationships with family members, access to necessities, space, etc. Join Dr. Darien McFadden and Dr. Sarah Erickson from the Counseling Center, and Jxhn Martin, Director of the Queer Resource Center, for open discussion space that centers what folks are experiencing and potential strategies for coping, managing, and finding support.
