Reaching Students: How To Implement An Online Mental Health Screening

On-Demand Training

$ 0.00
The registration fee includes institutional access to the recording for one year.

As campus climates change so must the strategies employed to reach students. While campus-based, face-to-face programming provides quality touch-points with individuals, innovative behavioral health technology is increasingly used for both large-scale information dissemination and individual-level intervention. 

In this webinar, the presenter will begin with an overview of the benefits that anonymous online mental health screenings can bring to a campus through broadening outreach to all students and meeting them where they are, that is, online. Offering mental health screenings raises campus awareness about mental health disorders, educates students and administrators about symptoms and resources, and connects those in need to quality treatment available to them on campus and the broader community. Participants will look at screening data collected from the 2014-2015 academic year from colleges across the country that implemented mental health screenings on their campuses.

The presenter will move on to discuss the mental health screening kiosk that has been installed at the recreation center on Drexel University's campus in Philadelphia and will outline how the kiosk works as a freestanding tool, as well as a component of a larger prevention and education approach within the university.

  • List the benefits of implementing anonymous online mental health screenings
  • Analyze the data collected from mental health screenings over the 2014-2015 academic year
  • Discuss how a freestanding kiosk can promote changes in the way their campus community views mental health
  • Assess the successes and challenges presented from the first campus mental health screening kiosk
  • 2-year & 4-year institutions
  • Student Services/Affairs
  • Advising & Counseling
  • Health & Wellness
  • Behavioral Intervention Teams (BITs)
  • Campus Safety
  • Student Code Of Conduct Officers
  • Any educator interested in implementing mental health screening options
"The presence of mental health screening kiosk on campus shows students that mental health is a priority and may normalize help seeking and reduce stigma."

Joanna Karbel is the Program Manager for the CollegeResponse screening and education program. She rejoined the team at Screening for Mental Health (SMH) in January 2013. She had worked there previously as the Program Coordinator for the CollegeResponse program.

Joanna left SMH in 2009 to pursue her Master of Science Degree in College Student Development and Counseling at Northeastern University. During her time in school and after graduating, she worked as an academic advisor at both MassBay Community College and Wentworth Institute of Technology.

Her experiences in the classroom and on college campuses strengthened her concern about the social, emotional, and transitional hurdles that many college students are up against, not to mention their demanding academic responsibilities. These concerns led to her return to the CollegeResponse program to support colleges and universities in their efforts toward early detection of depression, eating disorders and alcohol problems.

Molly Foulds is the Program Manager for the MindKare program. She joined the CommunityResponse team at Screening for Mental Health (SMH) in February 2012, before moving to the MindKare program in May 2015 when it began. She is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Human Services from Northeastern University. Before her time at SMH, she worked as an AmeriCorps VISTA volunteer in Wyoming and New Hampshire.
