Stress Management

Programs and Initiatives for Stress Management

Graduate school can be stressful! At UMB, we are committed to spreading awareness about stress and anxiety, creating supportive programming, and providing resources designed to help students achieve academic success. A little bit of stress is good to motivate us to perform, and to pursue our personal and professional desires. However, the way that we respond to stress can make a big difference to our overall well-being. Learning how to cope with stress is important for mental and physical wellbeing.
