  • Addressing Oppression and Inequality

    Health and Wellness Services supports all CSUMB students in their psychological, physical and social well-being. Supporting social well-being includes helping students to cope with racism and other forms of oppression.

  • Managing Stress During COVID-19

    COVID-19 can trigger a variety of emotional responses. It is valid to feel anxious about the health and well-being of ourselves and others. Some may find this more difficult to cope with than others, but there are helpful things our campus can do to respond and maintain a healthy well-being.
