COVID-19 Pandemic Self-Care Resources

The Penn Vet Wellness Task Force, Culture Committees, Student Wellness Committee, and HOOF (Helping Others On the Frontlines) Committee have compiled resources to help you stay connected and well during this time of social isolation and stress. These resources can help you practice self-care and stay mentally well. We can all practice self-care but if you feel you need more help during this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to Dr. Page Buck, the counselor at New Bolton Center, or CAPS. Dr. Buck remains available remotely and has sent the message below. Please also see more contact information on the Penn Vet Wellness Resources page.
