Many students manage the normal, day to day stresses and challenges of college on their own, or with the support of friends and family and/or faith and other communities. In addition to the support of loved ones, information and basic guidance through the Colonial Health Center's Self Help Library can provide you with information and education that can help resolve personal difficulties and help you acquire the skills, attitudes, and knowledge that will enable you to take full advantage of your experiences at GW.
At the CHC we acknowledge and celebrate the many identities that Colonials brings to our campus community. Find resources here that help support the intersection of your identities; including your identity as a member of a specific GW school or program, your racial and cultural identities, sexual identity, gender identity, and personal identity development.
Colonials are busy and it can be challenging to learn how to manage your schedule when pulled in many directions. Learn how to manage time, address procrastination, and reduce test anxiety--all while keeping sleep and self-care a priority.
At the Colonial Health Center, we know that maintaining mental health and wellbeing allows Colonials to excel in your personal and academic goals. Here, you'll find mindfulness tools and support to address anxiety, depression, trauma, and grief. You can also discover ways to build better relationships.
