Supporting Resources

Counseling Center Newsletter

Make sure to check out the UW-Stout's Counseling Center's weekly newsletter with more resources. New issues each week.

This week's issue covers Healthy Relationships.

Wellness Wednesday

Try making a list of things you still can do that you would enjoy (both individually and as a family), like a “social distancing bucket list,” as this home-centered life may be an opportunity to develop a new hobby, relationship, or skill that you didn’t have time for before it happened.

Start a gratitude journal, because even though there is much change, recognizing what has gone well can help reduce stress and anxiety. Another practice of gratitude could be to take the time to write letters or emails to people who have made a positive impact in your life.

Chancellor virtual office hours available

Chancellor Katherine P. Frank will hold virtual office hours from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday, May 7, and 8 to 9 a.m. on Friday, May 8. Faculty, staff and students are welcome to schedule a 15-minute virtual meeting by emailing here. The meetings will be via Teams or by telephone.

Legislation Introduced to Provide Economic Impact Payments for College Students and Adult Dependents

U.S. Rep. Ron Kind would like UW-Stout students to know that he  and  Rep. Jackie Walorski of Indiana have introduced legislation to ensure college students and adult dependents are eligible to receive federal funding in the form of direct payments. “College students’ lives were particularly uprooted by this crisis, often losing not only their homes but in many cases jobs as well,” said Rep. Kind, “This legislation will fill in gaps in the CARES Act by expanding eligibility for economic impact payments and take an important step towards providing further relief.” Details of the legislation are available here.
