I’m Feeling Stressed

We all feel it, from time to time…stressed! Especially now, we at the University are still doing our very best to come up with some de-stressing, virtual programming for you.

Virtual Weekly Workshops!

The Office of Health Promotion will be offering a variety of our weekly workshops in a virtual space for the remainder of the semester. Follow us on HawkSync & Instagram to stay up to date. We post reminders and updates each week!

Mindfulness Meditation

  • Mondays 1-2 p.m.
  • All are welcome to meditate and develop mindfulness in daily life. You can participate in Video or Audio.

Fireside Chats

  • Tuesdays 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Grab a cup of tea, coffee or cocoa and join us virtually for our weekly Fireside Chats! This is a great opportunity to have casual conversations during this stressful and unusual time.

Recovery Room

  • Tuesdays, 3-4 p.m. and Thursdays, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • An informal and confidential group for students who want to explore their relationship with alcohol and other drugs, self-identify as recovering from alcohol and other drugs, or seeking recovery resources, to network and to support one another in a safe environment.
  • For more information and details to participate in this group, contact Dr. Marie Cascarano at

This group is only open to Montclair State University students who are currently in recovery from alcohol or other drugs, or actively seeking recovery resources. Please note people looking to observe in order to fulfill academic requirements or for any other reason will NOT be permitted.
