Mental health is a community concern. Are you ready to RESPOND?
February 8, 2024
Join the ISU counseling staff on Friday, February 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for RESPOND training.
All of us experience emotional pain or distress at times in our lives, and about 1 in 5 of us will even experience a diagnosable mental illness this year. Most of us want to help when we encounter someone who is struggling in this way, yet we often feel uncertain about what to do or say.
RESPOND was designed to provide those tools.
Join the ISU counseling staff on Friday, February 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for RESPOND training. Highlights of the training include an overview of symptoms often associated with mental health problems, campus policies such as FERPA, mental health resources, and an action plan that will empower you to offer effective support and useful referrals to a student or colleague. An RSVP and full-day attendance are required for completion of the training.
Who should attend RESPOND training? 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 this training. For more information or questions, please contact the Counseling and Mental Health Center at (208)-282-2130 or visit their Trainings and Workshops web page.
