This message was shared with the students of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa on March 13, 2020.
The news involving the spread and impact of COVID-19, and especially the uncertainty it brings, can cause increased stress and anxiety. Some members of our campus community may be affected by the virus without themselves being sick. Some have concerns regarding family members and friends in other areas who are ill or who are at increased risk. The faculty and staff at the Counseling and Student Development Center (CSDC) would like the UH Mānoa community to know we remain committed to providing quality care and services to our students.
The mental health professionals at the CSDC are here to help if you are in need of support. The center is currently open and operating. We, along with campus partners, are monitoring the situation as it develops on campus and in our community. We will keep our website updated and inform students with existing appointments of any changes that may occur.
Students can call the CSDC at (808) 956-7927 to schedule an appointment with a counselor or to hear more about counseling resources on campus. We are located in the Queen Liliʻuokalani Center for Student Services, Room 312. Website: http://www.manoa.hawaii.edu/counseling.
