Student Wellness and Success provides helpful resources

Stressed? Experiencing anxiety? Burn out?

You are not alone.

It’s typical at this point in the semester for law students struggle with imposter syndrome, stress, anxiety, and burnout. As a result, the Student Wellness and Success program is working in partnership with Lawyers Helping Lawyers and the South Carolina Bar to address the stress and pressures of the season.

“Some days are just plain hard and doing what needs to get done can seem overwhelming,” said Cristy Lorente, assistant director of Student Wellness and Success. “These are the days when you need to lean on your community the most.”

Charleston will host its final student-led Stress & Burnout Engagement Group today at noon in Room 222. The event is designed to “foster meaningful conversations about the issues you are facing; learning techniques and tools to stay balanced during the chaos of law school; and a weekly space to decompress,” noted Lorente.
