We all face stresses in life – schoolwork, conflict with peers, and more. How can we cope? In this series of videos on self-care, we hear from students in middle school, high school, and college about the stresses in their lives and how they practice self-care to manage.
NOTE: The stories shared cover a range of topics that some viewers may find sensitive in nature, including mention of parent divorce, and feelings of depression. Please see below for additional resources on these topics.
