  • Saying "no" when you need to without feeling guilty.
  • You feel content most of the time.
  • Feeling you have people in your life that care about you- a strong support network.
  • Being able to relax.
  • Feeling good about who you are.

Stress Management 

Stress is a normal part of life. But learning to recognize good and bad stress, and how to cope with both, is essential to being emotionally well. How each of us responds to stress is as individual as we are. Individual stress management eduation/counseling appointments are available to all UNH students who have paid the health fee.


Becoming a clear communicator means effectively conveying your thoughts, ideas, needs and wants. Communicating clearly helps you manage your time and your life, to feel good about yourself, and to build trustworthy relationships with others.

How do you bounce back from life's challenges? All individuals, regardless of who they are, the challenges they encounter or where they come from, have the human capacity and personal power to face, overcome, grow and bounce back from adversity, stress, or trauma. This is known as resilience. How resilient are you?

Coping with Grief

Grief can create a variety of emotions that can range from deep sadness to anger. Some of these feelings may be new to you. Accepting and acknowledging that these are normal reactions in grieving is one of the first steps in healing from a loss.
