RESPOND Training Set March 5 and 12
March 1, 2021
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, 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. Now more than ever, RESPOND training can help us support our students and each other through this difficult and challenging time. 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. While the training is a time commitment, the course is highly interactive and engaging.
Who should attend?
Any Idaho State University faculty, staff, or administrator who wishes to learn more about how to RESPOND to students or colleagues who are in distress. Graduate and undergraduate students who work in student-assistance roles are also welcome to attend these trainings.
What is the cost?
In our commitment to improving campus mental health, the RESPOND training is offered free of charge.
When is the training?
March 5 and March 12, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Attendance on both days is required for full training)
