1:00 - 3:00 pm
Facilitator: Joanne Mills, Psychologist, Student Health & Wellnes
The MH101 session is limited to faculty, instructors, and staff at Dalhousie and King's.
In any given year 1 in 5 Canadians will experience a mental illness, and according to Statistics Canada youth aged 15-24 are the most likely group to suffer the effects of a mental illness, substance dependency and suicide. Considering most university students are within this age group it is essential that those working with University students are provided the necessary knowledge and resources to recognize and respond to students in distress.
MH101 is a short yet informative presentation developed for university faculty and staff to increase awareness and understanding of mental illness and mental health problems, thus increase your confidence in supporting students.
