Workshop description

Mental health and the well-being of students on our campus is a shared responsibility. There are situations that may arise surrounding student mental health in the classroom and teaching assistants, in many cases, may be the first to notice. In this workshop, we will explore how to proactively support student mental health in the classroom and how to respond to mental health problems that come to your attention. By the end of the workshop, you will develop strategies for supporting students in your role as a teaching assistant and identify relevant support networks and resources within the University.
