Additional Mental Health Resources:
For free interactive self-help therapy, students can access the Penn State Well Track portal at: https://psu.welltrack.com/.
[email protected] is a new online portal that gives students one place to access comprehensive resources, tools, and information around a range of topics within three pillars: Succeed, Thrive, Matter. The portal offers valuable content related to COVID-19, such as working and learning remotely, managing fears and anxieties, and staying connected while physical distancing.
Students log in to the portal at You.PSU.edu using their Penn State credentials. After logging into the portal for the first time, students can create a profile, take a brief questionnaire, and set goals. Based on this information, the content within the portal is customized to a student’s needs and interests, all while maintaining a student’s privacy and anonymity.
- Students who received testing or assignment accommodations from Student Disability Resources for the spring 2020 semester should continue to have access to accommodations throughout remote delivery of courses. The nature of any testing or assignment accommodations that were approved for spring semester 2020 in-residence courses may vary in the virtual format. Student Disability Resources will collaborate with faculty on the provision of testing and assignment accommodations specific to the virtual environment.
- Select accommodations may no longer be necessary in the virtually environment; conversely, a student may recognize a new accommodation need given the temporary transition to remote learning.
- If you have any questions about your accommodations, please contact Lynnsey Doane, [email protected], or Stella Millburn, [email protected].
