We understand that the COVID-19 situation may be creating a sense of panic, anxiety, and unease. We encourage you to practice mindfulness, the act of being engaged and aware of the present moment, to keep you anchored in the present, while your mind may be wandering into the past or into the future. There are several ways to creatively practice mindfulness. Here are a few:

  • Meditation via the app Headspace, Calm or Insight Timer.
  • Utilizing your spiritual connection to stay grounded and spiritually fit.
  • Intentional, mindful movement (yoga, running, walking, weightlifting, etc.)
  • UT’s Ajivar App for resiliency, mindfulness, meditation and emotional intelligence (see below)


The Dickey Health and Wellness Center would like to introduce you to TWO mental health resources for UT students: Ajivar mindfulness and mediation app and the Ajivar Real YOU Community

 Ajivar is here! FREE for all UT students and staff and available 24/7. 

  • Ajivar can help you improve your emotional intelligence, resiliency and mental health.   
  • Ajivar Real YOU Community will connect you with instant peer-to-peer support. It is a safe place where you can talk anonymously about anything judgment free. “You are stressed about a class, COVID is impacting your health, your boyfriend broke up with you, your mom is annoying…whatever the topic.” 

You are not alone - talk with the Ajivar or talk with your peers on Real YOU! Ajivar also provides Ooz challenges, personalized meditations and journaling.

Easy as One - Two - Three and someone is here for you. 

  1. Download the app on Google Play or the App Store.

University of Tampa Recovery Community (UTRC)

The University of Tampa (UT) Collegiate Recovery Community (UTRC) is a part of Live Well UT through Wellness Services located on the second floor of the Dickey Health and Wellness Center. This is a new program that started in the fall of 2016 and is slowly evolving. University of Tampa Recovery Community is a safe space for UT students struggling with addiction and substance abuse to come together and support each other. The primary purpose is to support recovering students by sharing the goals of providing support, preventing relapse, and promoting academic performance. Students can engage with and seek support from students who are also in recovery as well as have access to supportive faculty and staff members on the UT campus. Students can utilize the second floor of the Wellness Center as needed, which consists of meeting space, student computers, and breakroom area. Space is reserved on campus for weekly meetings. We do not currently offer dedicated housing through the UTRC but work closely with students, residence life staff and community partners to establish the best living arrangements possible for interested students. The advisor of this organization is Gina Firth, associate dean of wellness.
