On October 3rd UCITE held a session called "Identifying and helping students in distress" led by guests Dr. Nell Davidson (head of the University Health Services) and Dr. Jes Sellers (head of the University Counseling Services) in which they discussed the general features of student stress.
That session was popular and triggered important discussions on this topic. However there was insufficient time to go fully into the actual situation at CWRU, to learn how to identify situations and deal with them here. Hence we will be hosting a follow-up to that session, again with Dr. Davidson, and also Dr. Sara Lee, who will be discussing and sharing data from their Healthy Minds Study. This study was conducted on the CWRU campus during the last year, and sheds light on some of the mental health issues that affect our students.
This was originally a survey developed by the University of Michigan in 2007 and has been used by many universities across the nation, though it is customized for each particular school that chooses to offer it to students.
Please join us for this discussion from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid).
