The Station, Center Meeting Room

Saturday, February 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

This workshop, presented by Rachel Mayfield, counselor in Northwest Wellness Services, is 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Lunch will be provided.

“RESPOND” is designed to assist the campus community in identifying students with mental health concerns. Content includes a brief overview of mental health problems on college campuses, discussion about stigma and culture, an overview of signs associated with mental health problems. The remainder of the course is focused on how to effectively respond with basic listening and empathy, risk assessment at the lay level, support, referral, and taking care of self, including appropriate boundaries based on role or personal preference. The interactive training will address issues such as how FERPA works when mental health concerns exist, HIPAA where appropriate, and Title IX and confidential sources.

Career Pathing presentations are free for Northwest students and employees as part of the University’s Career Pathing program, which provides professional development opportunities to students interested in advancing to new levels of pay and responsibility. Community members are invited at a cost of $25 for Maryville Chamber of Commerce members or $40 for non-members. Registration is available online at
