Notice and Respond
Assisting Students in Distress
The Notice and Respond: Assisting Students in Distress workshops were developed as part of a broad public health approach to help our campus community understand the potential role they play in maintaining campus mental health.
The faculty version models an effective interaction between an instructor and a distressed student. Participants explore common concerns that may present barriers to taking action, and learn why a proactive response is vitally important.
A combination of learning modalities is used, including a realistic filmed scenario, participant discussion and a review of response options and campus resources.
