Carleton has created this page of wellness resources as way to support employees during the COVID-19 pandemic. As stay-at-home orders stretch on, many of us are experiencing certain things for the first time and taking on roles we never imagined ourselves playing.
Balancing work responsibilities with child care and home schooling is a lot to handle. Being stuck at home with the same person for an indefinite period of time can put stress on any relationship. Likewise, this social isolation can heighten loneliness.
