RESPOND - Faculty/Staff Training

The Station, Center Room

Thursday, September 6, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pm

Wellness Services is offering RESPOND, a four-hour training designed to assist campus community members in identifying students with mental health concerns. The course is organized around the acronym RESPOND
Recognize signs
Share concerns
Pose open questions
Offer hope
Navigate resources and policy
Do self-care

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. We define mental health problems broadly to include both sub-clinical concerns as well as mental illness. 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). We address issues such as how FERPA works when mental health concerns exist, HIPAA where appropriate, and very briefly Title IX and confidential sources. The course is designed to be interactive about 70% of the four-hour day.

The September 6th training is for FACULTY/STAFF ONLY. To register here, please go to:
