Staff and faculty members who supervise, teach, mentor or work with students are encouraged to attend this event to get answers to some of the following questions/scenarios:

  • What to say when a student is talking about mental health/emotional issues that they may not feel comfortable talking about or don’t know how to handle.
  • What to do when they encounter a student who may be depressed.
  • How fast can Counseling Services see a student?


This event will answer questions faculty and staff members often have and will give tips on how to support students.
