Supporting the Mental Health of Students: My Role
April 7, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CDT
Being responsive to student mental health requires moving beyond “refer them to counseling.” In a small, liberal arts context, each of us has a role in creating an environment in which students can be mentally well, developing a safety net for when students are struggling, and helping students to feel valued. In this workshop, Lisa Broek and Liz Schneider-Bateman will present a socio-ecological model for mental health on a small liberal arts campus. We will examine how this model aligns with equity and highlight the interdisciplinary collaboration that the model calls for. We’ll provide an opportunity for participants to reflect on their own role and walk away with actionable next steps to support the mental health of their students.
