I have to do a placement in the fall semester but I'm so worried that things won't be over by then! Just the thought of having to go in person is giving me anxiety, even if we are given PPE. I don't know what to do.

Hi ihave aquestion,

It is hard to know where we will be come September, and having some anxiety about that is normal. I'd like to share some resources that you might find helpful in managing the anxiety until then so it doesn't feel overwhelming:

Good2Talk - a free helpline for post-secondary students:

You may also find it helpful to talk to your placement coordinators to further discuss what your fall placement might look like.
