KALAMAZOO, Mich.—A global pandemic, a heated election year, social justice issues—there’s a lot weighing on everyone’s minds right now.
“I would imagine that just about everyone has experienced an increase in stress during this pandemic. The fear and anxiety that comes along with it can be overwhelming,” says Dr. Brian Fuller, director of Counseling Services at Western Michigan University.
A new self-help application available to WMU students, faculty and staff offers a number of tools and resources aimed at managing mental health. In support of the University’s wellness mission, WellTrack allows users to track their mood over time, identify stressors, intentionally schedule self-care activities and learn about strategies to manage feelings of depression, anxiety and stress.
