CAPS application provides
mechanism for stress release

Stressbusters
Wellness app features
health tips, exercises
By EMILIE PLESSET
Daily StaffReporter
Overwhelmed students can
now find stress-relieving solace
through the touch of a button--or
a few keystrokes, really.
University Counseling and
Psychological Services and its

student advisory board launched
the Stressbusters Wellness mobile
application earlier this month
during Winterfest, a student orga-
nization fair held in the Michigan
Union Jan. 15. The app is current-
ly available for no cost on both iOS
and Android phones.
The Wellness app includes
many stress-reducing features
including those customized for
University students. Users can use
the app to share daily stress-reduc-
ing and emotional health tips and
view news alerts, videos and audio

tracks that dictate simple stress
relieving exercises. The app also
includes one-touch emergency
buttons, among other features.
"We're really trying to reach
all students to address what is
going on underneath all the stress
and anxiety," said CAPS Director
Todd Sevig. "We hope this is one
part of that overall focus for us."
The app was produced by the
national Stressbusters Wellness
program and was customized
to meet the needs of college stu
dents. The University is among
one of the first higher education
institutionss to adopt the app.
JordaoaFriedmno, director of the
Natioonal Stressbusters Wellness
program, said the app serves to give
studeots an1 opportunity to access
the organizations resources.
"Not everyone can come to a
Stressbusters event," Friedman
said. "We wanted to be able to
get students and staff convenient
stress reduction and relaxation
resources wherever they are."
Although the app was devel-
oped this year, the idea to bring an
app to campus centering on stu-
dent wellness was initiated by the
SAB two years ago.
CAPS and the SAB worked on
bringing the app to the University
during fall 2013. In preparation
for the app's launch, CAPS col-
lected student-written encour-
agement messages and made
videos with a University-focus on
stress management. The app also
includes videos created by the
national program.
Sevig added that in the future,
the app may include pictures of
relaxing places on campus in addi-
tion to the written messages.
The Wellness app also includes
a Health Rewards system that
allows students to accumulate
points for participating in CAPS
programs. Students can redeem
points for discounts and Universi-
ty-themed items.
"We have seen increased num-
bers of students feeling anxiety,"
Sevig said. "We're trying to get
creative and address some of the
root causing creating stress and
anxiety on our campus."

Protesters march in central Kiev, Ukraine, Monday. Ukraine's justice minister is threatening to call for a state-of
emergency unless protesters leave her ministry building, which they occupied during the night.
After backlash against police,
Ukraine reverses protest laws

Pending amnesty
offer may bring
end to protests
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -
Ukraine's beleaguered presi-
dent on Monday agreed to
scrap harsh anti-protest laws
that set off a wave of clashes
between protesters and police
over the past week, a potential-
ly substantial concession to the
opposition that stopped short of
meeting all of its demands.
In a possibly major stick-
ing point, a proposed amnesty
for arrested protesters would
not be offered unless dem-
onstrators stopped occupy-
ing buildings and ended their
round-the-clock protests and
tent camp on Kiev's central
Independence Square, accord-
ing to a statement by Justice
Minister Elena Lukash on the
presidential website.
President Viktor Yanu-
kovych has been under increas-
ing pressure since he pushed
the tough laws through parlia-
ment, setting of clashes and
protests in other parts of the
country in a sharp escalation of
tensions after weeks of mostly
peaceful protests over his rejec-

tion of a deal to deepen ties with
the 28-nation European Union.
At a meeting between top
opposition figures and Yanu-
kovych late Monday "a political
decision was made on scrap-
ping the laws of Jan. 16, which
aroused much discussion,"
Lukash said.
She made no mention of a
key opposition demand - that
Yanukovych resign.
One of the opposition figures,
Arseniy Yatsenyuk, turned
down the prime minister's job,
which Yanukovych had offered
him on Saturday, the statement
said.
Eliminating the laws, which
is likely to be done in a spe-
cial parliament session Tues-
day, appears to be a serious
step back for the government.
The session is also expected
to include a discussion of gov-
ernment responsibility in the
crisis, suggesting a cabinet
reshuffle could be imminent.
It was not immediately clear
how the announcement would
be received. On Independence
Square, there was no immedi-
ate reaction from the relatively
small crowd gathered in bitter
cold near midnight.
A key issue will be the
amnesty offer, which could

allow for the release of dozens
of protesters currently being
held in jail in exchange for an
end to the demonstrations.
The statement did not say the
opposition would agree to those
terms. Doing so could infuri-
ate radical factions within the
broad-based protest movement,
such as the group called Right
Sector that has driven much of
the recent violence.
Several hours before the
statement, Right Sector issued
its own demands, which
include punishing officials
responsible for the deaths and
abuse of protesters, disbanding
Ukraine's feared riot police and
locating all missing opposition
figures.
Protest leaders say scores of
people have gone missing, pre-
sumably arrested.
Three protesters died in the
clashes last week, two of whom
were shot by hunting rifles,
which police insist they do not
use.
Protesters have been afraid
that authorities were preparing
to end the spreading demon-
strations by force, but the for-
eign ministry said earlier the
government has no immediate
plans to declare a state of emer-
gency.
