Self-Care

Taking care of your mental and physical well-being is of the upmost importance. UNH and the Graduate School provide a variety of resources to promote a healthy and supportive working environment. We work to ensure that there are clear avenues for seeking help and guidance as you navigate a process that, while highly rewarding, can be significantly challenging and stressful. We are here for you!
