A Holistic Approach to Campus Mental Health
Trinity’s provost, Dr. Carlota Ocampo, will speak about creating a culture of mental-health awareness and support to reduce anxiety and depression on campus on a panel hosted by the Chronicle of Higher Education, with support from TimelyMD. The virtual panel, designed for college and university faculty and administrators, is on Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at 2:00 pm ET. The panel, A Holistic Approach to Campus Mental, will be moderated by Kate Hildalgo Bellows, staff reporter for the Chronicle of Higher Education.
A healthy mind is essential for students to learn course material and for instructors to keep up with the rigors of a long semester. However, if psychological distress takes a grip on students and faculty, it can cause a chain reaction of negative well-being for the entire campus. What can be done to protect your academic community?
One solution is to create an environment where mental-health awareness and mutual care are widely practiced. In this virtual forum, Dr. Ocampo will join with other mental health experts to discuss how all groups across campus can create a culture of understanding and support. The panel will also discuss strategies for how leaders can build an infrastructure to best assist students and faculty who fall into crisis. Registration for this program is free. Register here.
