10 Signs of a Healthy and Unhealthy Relationship during COVID-19

Interpersonal stress has been linked to higher levels of depression and anxiety, more problems with substance use, and higher suicidal ideation. Research suggests that interpersonal stress experienced in romantic relationships has a more severe impact on well-being than stress experienced in any other relationship. This relationships workshop is an opportunity for you to think deeply about healthy and unhealthy relationships in ways that are active and creative. Participants will explore and understand the 10 signs of healthy and unhealthy relationships, and reflect on how to support a friend who is in an unhealthy relationship. We will have the opportunity to reflect on what it means to be in a healthy relationship – including family, friends, and romantic – during a time when we might be in close quarters with some and separated from others.
