The COVID-19 pandemic shed a spotlight on the mental health crisis facing young people. While anxiety and depression rates increased over the past year and a half, the need for easily accessible resources and support is by no means a new phenomenon. In this panel, experts will share examples of programs and research-based practices that can help keep college students healthy – whether they’re learning in person or online.
- Learn about data and statistics regarding student mental health and the various roles educators play in supporting students on campus
- Discuss and explore sustainable resources, services, and approaches to assist college students with a return to “normalcy.”
- Learn how to proactively engage with all students, not just individuals seeking help, and provide necessary coping skills to ensure long-term support.
