Supporting Students' Emotional and Physical Health


Date Released: 26 October 2017

Note new session time is 11:30-12:30

Developmentally, undergraduate and graduate/professional students are at a particularly vulnerable point in their lives. Many are away from home for the first time, facing new and unexpected academic and social pressures, and learning how to manage their lives separate from their families. In addition,because an individual's first major mental health crisis often happens in the late teens or early 20s, university students are particularly in need of resources and support.

On the front line in terms of student contact, faculty and staff may be some of the first to notice when a student is struggling. It is important, therefore, for them to be aware of the resources available to students, how to connect their students to these resources, and who to contact if they do not know how to address a situation.

Dr. Richard B. Pazol, Director of Counseling at the University Health and Counseling Services, will be discussing services available to students and how faculty can support students who are struggling. 

 This event will be on Thursday, October 26 from 11:30 - 12:30 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen building (at the corner of Adelbert and Euclid). Pizza lunch and sodas will be provided at this session.
