The Depressed Student: Supporting the Depressed Student in the Classroom

Mental health concerns account for student disconnect and withdrawal from college. Students who have mental health concerns struggle with academic development, classroom participation, connecting with their professors, and acclimating to college life altogether. As educators, we are not always equipped or prepared to recognize the signs of students who are stressed or who are in distress and functioning poorly. Objectives of this interactive, two-part session are to: •Identify signs of distress in students who are functioning poorly •Learn effective strategies for responding to students in distress •Explore available resources to support students and empower educators
