Location: Online (LEARN Site)

Description

Situations related to student mental health may arise in academic courses, and in many cases, instructors may be the first to notice. The Supporting Student Mental Health module for instructors is a self-paced, independent experience that will explore how to proactively support student mental health in your class and how to respond to mental health problems that come to your attention. We will consider implications for both in-person and online classes.  

By the end of the module, you will develop a toolkit that includes:

  • strategies for supporting students in your role as an instructor;
  • relevant support networks and resources within the University; and,
  • a self-care action plan to take care of your own mental health. 

The course is available by clicking on “Self-Registration” on the top navigation bar of your LEARN homepage and selecting “Supporting Student Mental Health” from the list of available courses.  The goal of this site is to provide you with the resources you need to support student mental health at your own pace and on your own time. Once enrolled you will not lose access to the site so you can continue to return to it as needed.
