Students may experience a great deal of stress during the course of their academic experiences. While most students cope successfully with the challenges these years bring, some students find the various pressures of life unmanageable or unbearable.
As faculty and staff, you may encounter distressed students in your office or your classrooms. Many of these students have not sought mental health counseling and may be unaware of the services available to them.
Your role could be a positive and crucial one in identifying students who are in distress and assisting them to find the resources available to help themselves. The information below will provide suggestions for faculty and staff on assisting students in distress.
