MSU RESPOND Training – May 25, 2021
The MSU Counseling Center and Dean of Students Office are pleased to announce a free opportunity for staff and faculty to learn how to better recognize, support, and refer someone who needs assistance with mental health concerns. Want to learn more about how to effectively RESPOND to a student, staff, or faculty member in need of help? Please see details below, and register to join us for this worthwhile training on May 25!
Mental health problems affect each of us. You can take action to RESPOND effectively. ‘
About 1 in 5 of us will experience a diagnosable mental illness this year. All of us experience emotional pain or distress at times in our lives. Most of us want to help yet often feel uncertain about what to do or say. RESPOND will empower you to offer effective support to a student or colleague. This course provides a basic overview of symptoms often associated with mental health problems and offers an action plan to help you RESPOND effectively. In addition, the course will address campus policies such as FERPA and will review campus and community mental health resources.
Simply being present can change a life.
RESPOND is an 8-hour training offered at no cost to MSU faculty and staff, thanks to generous support from the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs.
