Feeling isolated? Stressed? More anxious than usual? You are not alone.
What is Headspace?
Headspace is a new opportunity for UF students to discuss discuss isolation, stress, anxiety, and anything else that is important to you. Each Headspace group will consist of a maximum of 8 students and a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) facilitator, to help provide skills and techniques for mindfulness, wellness, and self-care.
Is this therapy?
No. Headspace simply provides a confidential, safe space for students to share their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. The topics discussed in each of the sessions will be driven by students. The LCSW facilitator supports the sessions by sharing self-care ideas, calming tips, and other techniques to encourage wellbeing.
What's the commitment?
There is no regular commitment to Headspace. Students are encouraged to sign up for a single session, try it out, and return as you wish. Headspace will be offered twice a week and each session is 60 minutes. Headspace will begin the week of Monday, January 25.
In-person, at Hillel, on Monday afternoons from 1-2pm, starting Jan. 25,
Virtually, over Zoom, on Thursdays from 6-7pm, starting Jan. 28.
