At GW MFA, we stand committed to helping our faculty and staff with life's challenges, and that commitment is stronger than ever during the current period of uncertainty. As we go through this shared experience as a world and community, it's important that we remain focused on our health and take time out of our day to practice self-care.
Headspace, the mindfulness app, is now available to benefits-eligible faculty and staff. This daily tool provides meditation, sleep, movement exercises, and kids programs. The "Weathering the Storm" section is specially designed in response to the unique stress caused by the pandemic. While it is our hope that giving you access to this resource provides you with some immediate support, the importance of caring for your mental well-being extends beyond our current situation.
