Overview: Rest assured, your campus has a significant number of students who are dealing with emotional and mental issues. Join your colleagues from around the world as we discuss the extent of the problem, the implications for everyone who works in higher education, and what can be done to better meet the needs of these college students and keep our campuses safe and secure. Specifically, we will explore how administrators, faculty and staff can better meet the needs of students with mental health diagnoses as well as those affected when an unfortunate event occurs on campus. Indeed, understanding the characteristics of these students, the trauma they can potentially cause, and the impact it can have on all constituencies present on campus is essential to maintaining a safe, secure, and educationally-focused campus environment.

Why should you Attend: The effects on the institution can be dramatic when a student with a mental health diagnosis engages in violent or disruptive behavior. Students with emotional issues and mental health concerns often 'fall through the cracks' and subsequently drop out. This leads to lower retention and graduation rates, which affects the college or university's reputation, ranking and recruiting. Budgets sustain damage as universities hustle to fill unexpectedly empty classroom seats. Even worse, a student who is experiencing severe stress (which often accompanies unrecognized or untreated mental and emotional conditions) is much more likely to engage in dangerous, even deadly behaviors, which adversely affects the institution in a myriad of ways. No one wants their school to be the site of the next student tragedy.

Areas Covered in the Session:

Recognize students who are experiencing emotional distress
Intervene effectively with students who are exhibiting symptoms of mental illness
Make effective referrals for students who need additional assistance
Consult effectively with mental health and other professionals
Intervene appropriately in situations where the student or other individuals are at risk for harm
Describe the different ways trauma affects students -individually and collectively
Learn the warning signs that are often present when a student is about to engage in violent and disruptive behaviors
Demonstrate best-practices in coordinating an effective response to traumatic events
Construct a traumatic-readiness needs assessment for their campus
Critique evidence-based strategies for responding to traumatic events
Explore the legal and ethical considerations associate with students with mental health diagnoses and in responding to the unfortunate episodes they can cause
Examine the different types of early warning and emergency responses teams
Design a training and education plan to make sure everyone on campus knows their respective roles in responding to the needs of students with mental health diagnoses as well as the traumatic events they can precipitate

Who Will Benefit:
Anyone in higher education who is involved in meeting the needs of students with mental health diagnoses and/or responding to unfortunate events precipitated by these individuals
