Helping the Helpers:  Tell Us Your Experiences and Ideas About Supporting Student Mental Health

We know that you, as faculty, are often the first to learn about challenges to your students’ wellbeing.  We are interested in knowing more about your experiences and about how the Office of Faculty Excellence and other campus units can support you and your students. Please read this article, Professors Struggle With Demands to Tend to Students’ Mental Health, in The Chronicle of Higher Education.
