Coping with Quarantine + Isolation

rotunda with students on a clear, sunny day

If you are currently in quarantine or isolation because of COVID-19, we'd like you to know that we are thinking of you and are here to support you. The feelings of stress, loneliness, and/or anxiety that you may be encountering are valid, and very normal. While our teams are here to help, we encourage you to focus on what is within your control. Be intentional about your self-care, and use your support systems. We hope that you will soon feel better, and be back to a more normal routine.

You are not alone. The following well-being resources are available for you to explore and use as feels comfortable during your time in quarantine or isolation:

  • SilverCloud is a free, online mental health tool that helps students develop skills for managing stress, anxiety, sleep, and depression. Based on cognitive behavioral therapy principles, the self-guided program can be accessed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
  • Take some time and review our well-being guides, a collaborative effort by students and staff that includes information and next steps specific to UVA related to various well-being dimensions.
  • Drop in to a virtual "Let's Talk" consult session with a CAPS counselor, hosted by UVA CAPS every Monday and Friday.
