Campus Mental Health – Helping Students in Distress
May 17, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Guest Speaker: Jamie Davidson, Ph.D.
Associate Vice Pres. for Student Wellness
University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Just as you depend on other departments for outreach in your efforts, your mental health department may look to you as a ‘first-responder’ to:
- Listen for symptoms of students in distress
- Respond to needs ‘appropriately’ and act as a liaison
- Empathize and reinforce help seeking behavior
- Recognize behaviors from ‘Immaturity to illness’
