Can I Get an Extension? Supporting Students Facing Mental Health Challenges
 
This workshop asks instructors to consider their roles and responsibilities in supporting students who face mental health challenges. Built around two scenarios that present situations and dynamics U-M teachers commonly encounter with their students, the session will guide participants to proactively shape their pedagogical practices with an awareness of student mental health concerns. Participants will assess their current comfort and skills interacting with students who may be experiencing distress related to mental health concerns; gain general information about the current landscape of mental health in higher education; and learn a range of specific strategies that will help them anticipate and respond--with both compassion and appropriate boundaries--to student mental health challenges.
