Location: MC 2036
Student mental health and well-being is a crucial dimension of the academic environment. In this workshop, you will learn about your role and responsibilities as a Teaching Assistant in supporting student mental health on campus. The focus will be on explaining relevant University policies and identifying the resources and services that both you and your students can draw upon. Together, we will explore how to proactively promote mental well-being in the classroom, as well as how to respond to specific mental health needs that come to your attention. By the end of the workshop, you will have developed practicable guidelines and strategies for supporting students in your role as a Teaching Assistant, and you will be able to identify the broader support networks that exist within the University to help you accomplish that goal.
