Supporting Students' Mental Health

Invitation: Learn more about how instructors can support students' mental health.


Presenter: Liz Norell

Description: Survey data from the 2021 Healthy Minds survey of UM students makes the challenges around student mental health clear. For example, the survey revealed that nearly half (46%) of responding students met the DSM definition of having moderate or severe depression. More than half of students (52%) in that survey said that mental health challenges in the preceding four weeks had hurt their academic performance on three or more days of the week. In this workshop, we will review the results of that survey to establish the scope of mental health challenges in our student population. We’ll then discuss ways instructors can weave supports for student mental health into their work–importantly, not by assuming the role of therapist or social worker. 

Lunch will be provided.

Register here by March 20.
