RESPOND: Partnering for Campus Mental Health


Mental health problems affect each of us. You can take action to RESPOND effectively.

About 1 in 5 of us will experience a diagnosable mental illness this year. All of us experience emotional pain or distress at times in our lives. Most of us want to help yet often feel uncertain about what to do or say. RESPOND will empower you to offer effective support and useful referrals to a student or colleague. The course provides a basic overview of symptoms often associated with mental health problems and offers an action plan to help you RESPOND effectively. The course will address campus policies such as FERPA, as well as mental health resources.

Simply being present can change a life. 

Training is a full day, from 8:30am-4:30pm.
