Notice and Respond: Assisting Students in Distress
The Notice and Respond: Assisting Students in Distress workshops were developed as part of a broad public health approach to help our campus community understand the potential role they play in maintaining campus mental health.
The 90 minute faculty version models an effective interaction between a faculty member and a distressed student. Participants explore shared experiences and common concerns that may present barriers to taking action, and learn why a proactive response is vitally important. A combination of learning modalities is used, including a realistic filmed scenario, participant discussion and a review of response options and campus resources.
