Workshop: Teaching and student mental health

Faculty, staff, instructors and graduate students in the Faculty of Education are invited to participate in a professional development session on working with students and mental health issues. Representatives from Brock’s Student Wellness and Accessibility Centre will be facilitating a panel presentation followed by workshop style activities.

Student mental health is an ever growing concern across University campuses.  Mental health concerns affect academic performance, class attendance, and interpersonal relationships. With suicide as the second leading cause of death among young adults (and typical age of the onset of mental illness being under 24), awareness, prevention and intervention are paramount. This workshop will provide participants a working knowledge of the campus’s mental health concerns, mental health accommodations, and intervention for students of concern. Participants will leave with working knowledge of mental illness and an understanding of their role in support and intervention.
