Mental health issues among graduate students are increasingly prevalent, complex, and acute, with the significant potential to negatively impact academic performance, persistence, and time-to-degree.  This workshop is offered to any support staff who have a professional role related to graduate student functioning and success.  We will review the most recent survey and clinical data, discuss intervention and engagement strategies, and review referral resources on- and off-campus. 

This session is also offered on November 27, 2018.
