Want to know how to assist your students who are experiencing mental health issues? Need information on how to best help students in a virtual learning environment?

In this brown bag lunch seminar at noon Sept. 14, University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) faculty will learn how to assist their students who may be experiencing mental health issues. We will discuss how students’ mental health may be impacted by the pandemic, how to support student mental health in the virtual learning environment, and the availability of telehealth and consultation services available through the Student Counseling Center. 

Led by Jenna Silverman, PhD, a psychologist at the UMB Student Counseling Center, faculty will be introduced to a practical tool called the “Assisting Students in Distress Folder.” This folder contains a quick reference guide, as well as information on how to recognize symptoms, respond to students, and refer them for therapy or other immediate help. A copy of the folder will be given to all participants.

Feel free to participate while eating your lunch and bring any questions you have about how to help your students with mental health issues!
