Coping with Election Stress

November 11, 2022

Election season brings up high levels of stress, tension, fatigue, fear, and overwhelm for many UT employees.

We offer these resources which may be a support to help navigate the spectrum of feelings you are encountering related to the election. As a gentle reminder, because we’re all unique, the coping strategies that soothe or support a friend or colleague may or may not be what you’re needing. You can try these different approaches to see what options might strengthen or expand practices already in your tool belt. 

If you want to process election stress, you can speak to a counselor at the Employee Assistance Program for free, confidential counseling. Please reach out to (512)471-3366 or email to schedule.
