Mental health is often in the news with worrisome data about anxiety, depression, suicidality, substance abuse, and other student concerns. And, this is compounded by the current epidemic we are all managing. What is the truth about mental health at Iowa and during the time of pandemic?
This informative, interactive, and fun program introduces you to issues of campus mental health and shares information about your role as “first line responders” in helping your student stay mentally healthy through their time at Iowa. This program provides useful and practical ideas for recognizing when your student is in true distress, how to connect with your student to access the abundance of campus resources, and ideas about keeping open communication when discussing confidential mental health information. While this program is directed at Parents and Families, this program is perfect for students to attend, too! Presented by your friends at The University Counseling Service.
