The October 1 RESPOND Training will be moving to Zoom. Please RSVP by September 29. For more information or questions, please contact Counseling and Testing at 203-282-2130 or visit our website. Why should you attend? About 1 in 5 of us will experience a diagnosable mental illness this year, and 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 also address campus policies such as FERPA, as well as mental health resources.
