Location:422 Dunton Tower
Cost:Free

Facilitator: Kim Hellemans (Department of Neuroscience), Sarah Todd (School of Social Work), Sonia Tanguay (Paul Menton Centre)

Student mental health is a growing concern, but how do we balance our concern and support with maintaining high academic standards? How can we have difficult conversations with students whose mental health is impeding their academic progress? This WTMC session will feature faculty and staff sharing information on how to support students who have mental health concerns. Kim Hellemans (Neuroscience), Sarah Todd (Social Work), and Sonia Tanguay (Paul Menton Centre) will provide their perspectives on supporting student mental health, from course and program design to student services and accommodations.

 Space is limited, so please register here in advance – and don’t forget to pack a lunch!
