A Holistic Approach to Campus Mental Health
Tue, 02/07/2023 - 2:00 pm EST
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 our upcoming Virtual Forum, we will be joined by mental health experts to discuss how all groups across campus can create a culture of understanding and support. We will also discuss strategies for how leaders can build an infrastructure to best assist students and faculty who fall into crisis. Event registration.

Fish and Chips: Comprehensive Collegiate Problem Gambling Programming
Wed, 02/15/2023 - 2:00 pm EST
In developing a problem gambling program with colleges and universities; where do you start? Who do you work with? While professionals in the problem gambling field have known for years that college and university students are at an increased risk for developing problem gambling behaviors, few have been able to get effective and sustainable programs off the ground. These professionals typically receive the same responses of “our students don’t gamble” or more often “we have bigger fish to fry.” When developing a problem gambling program with colleges and universities we can’t just focus on the sports brackets, fantasy leagues and poker Chips, we must also address the Fish. This session will discuss the necessity of integrating problem gambling programming into campus life issues including substance use, mental health, finances, peer support and wellness and highlight key student populations to collaborate with when developing these programs. Free registration.
