The need for increased attention to the mental health challenges of students is well understood, and institutions are responding to the degree possible with expanded staff in counseling centers along with an increased focus on resiliency, wellness, and self-care. The panel will discuss strategies to engage administrators, colleagues in other Student Affairs units, faculty, academic leaders, and other members of the campus community in these efforts. Discussion will focus on strategies to reach out, motivate, and provide resources to those who interact with students every day and are, therefore, in a position to identify and provide a level of assistance and referral to a student in need.
