Hello Undergraduates!

Are you at least 18 years old and an undergraduate student? Are you interested in helping teacher-researchers learn more about what students know about people and their behavior? If so, then you are eligible to participate in a 30 minute fully online survey in which you can say what you think about various aspects of human behavior and mental processes!

Participation is 100% voluntary, and all information will remain anonymous. All you need to do is click here. Once you click on the link, you will be redirected to an online survey powered by Qualtrics. After completing the survey, you may, if you wish, click a separate link at which you can enter a lottery for a $25 electronic gift card. 

This campus-wide project has been approved by the U of M Institutional Review Board (STUDY00021899) and is also being conducted at other universities across the US!

For questions, please email the Principal Investigator, Dr. Rick LaCaille at [email protected].

Hello from Learn to Live! 
 Stress is a normal part of life but learning how to cope with it helps us navigate those times of uncertainty. In recognition of National Stress Awareness Month, here are some tips to manage stress:
  •  Keep a positive attitude and accept that there are events that you cannot control. 
  • Set limits appropriately and say no to requests that would create excessive stress in your life.
  • Make time for hobbies and interests.
  • Don't rely on alcohol, drugs, or other substances to reduce stress. These can stress your body even more. 
  •  Seek out social support. Spend time with those you love. 
Our programs offer tools and strategies that help calm your mind and manage stress more effectively. We encourage you to start with a brief assessment and from there be guided into one of our programs, including Stress, Anxiety and Worry.
Learning to manage stress is a positive step to take towards enjoying a healthier, happier life. We look forward to having you join us this month!
