Pinned Post: Resources for Students

Simone Biles in Tokyo Olympics, July 2021 (AP)

As I write this, the greatest gymnast of all time, Simone Biles, has withdrawn from the women’s gymnastics team finals in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics (delayed until 2021 due to the pandemic) because her mental health was suffering.

As someone wrote on Facebook:

If you need help, take a cue from the GOAT Simone Biles, and listen to your mind, body, and soul. If you’re struggling, please read the following.

(Adapted from the Colorado Healthcare Ethics Resource.)

The ways that each of us reacts to stress fall on a continuum.

You may feel little to no impact, or you may feel an increased stress response. When stress is ongoing or severe, this can lead to severe distress, burnout, or traumatic responses.

Personal experiences, support systems, coping mechanisms, external stressors, adverse childhood experiences, and the length of time we have felt increased stress can contribute to where we fall on the continuum. 

Expect that where you are on this continuum can change. It’s also important to remember that people will react differently to the same situation, and that is ok.  

Know that: 

  • What you are feeling and experiencing matters.
  • It’s likely that many people are feeling similar.
  • There are resources—and people—to help you.
  • Your professors care. Let us know if you need help, extensions on work, or a sympathetic ear.

This is a partial list of resources in our area. Remember: it’s not a sign of weakness to ask for help when you need it. It’s a sign of STRENGTH.
