We're here to help you support the students in your life.
As a faculty or staff member serving students, you may be the first to notice when a student is in distress or facing difficult circumstances. Your special relationship with a student can give you an up-close view of their daily life. This puts you in a unique position to help connect students with the resources and supports that will help them feel better and succeed in school. We're here to help you support them.
Notice. Care. Help.
It's our framework for supporting mental health and wellness as a community. Here's what it means:
- Notice student wellbeing and opportunities to promote wellness.
- Learn the signs that someone is struggling or needs immediate help.
- Communicate with students of concern.
- Encourage self-care and health-promoting behaviors in the students you serve.
- Offer the level of help and support you can.
- Encourage and help students connect with professional help.
