The purpose of this session is to help students, staff and faculty recognize when someone is struggling with their mental health and what to do to support them.  Participants will learn about the dual continuum model for mental health and be given strategies to help someone who is in immediate distress and/or in crisis. Practical tips on what to say and do will be discussed so participants leave the session knowing how to connect someone with the appropriate resources.

At the end of this training, participants will:

  • Gain mental health literacy skills
  • Be able to recognize when someone is in distress
  • Know steps to take to help someone with a mental health problem
  • Discover what mental health resources exist on campus and in the community
