Description:
If you wanted to lose weight by improving your diet, you couldn’t just stop eating junk food. Likewise, if you feel your tech habits are over-bloated, saying “no more technology” will be neither realistic nor sustainable. So, what can we do to maintain the right sense of balance between our real and digital lives, especially as technology takes up more and more space? How can we do a better job modeling appropriate use of technology for our kids? Is there a way we can embrace the digital age without becoming slaves to our devices? In this session, we will explore the latest research about our online habits and discuss strategies for thriving in the digital age.
Goals and Target Audience:
Participants will review the latest research on the trends in personal technology use, and then consider ways to bring conscious choice and purposeful habits into our individual digital lives. Target audience is anyone who experiences a sense of imbalance, overwhelm, or addition in their digital lives.

An integral component of this early intervention and suicide prevention training, is exploring not only the warning signs of declining mental/emotional health but also, campus support resources and the undercurrents of human interaction around mental health situations. We will discuss why and how our perceived barriers can make it so difficult to intervene when someone is struggling. Participants in this session will complete CSU Health Network’s Notice and Respond Assisting Students in Distress training program, which includes information about various campus resources, and will discover the “what’s next” in regards to the behind the scenes processes that the TELL SOMEONE Program utilizes to help provide support to students and employees of concern, specific to their unique needs.

For any Faculty, Staff, Support, State Classified, Admin-Pro, Student Affairs Professionals to learn more about recognizing signs of student/employee distress and how the Tell Someone Program can intervene
