This session is designed to provide faculty and staff some practical advice on how to manage students with mental health difficulties around campus. Today’s mental health issues reach into every part of campus. Faculty, registrar, parking and transportation support staff, coaches and others are all witness to the difficulties facing these students. They also have a desire to help them when they are in distress.

We will discuss several case studies on mental health difficulties that occur around the campus and offer some suggestions on how to best deal with these problems. These five case studies will include:

  • Depression and Suicide
  • Veterans issues with adjustment and trauma (with focus on non-traditional students)
  • Aspergers disorder and social problems (with attention on bullying)
  • Substance abuse
  • Thought Disorder, bi-polar and medication compliance

Participants will learn how to:

  1. manage at-risk students in an acute emergency
  2. refer students for counseling, residential life, academic, financial and medication support
  3. remain in ADA compliance with at-risk students
  4. understand the various mental health issues which impact at-risk students in order to better provide support and care
