Location: Graduate Student Center 205
Summary: In this workshop, we will explore intersections of stress, mental illness, and learning in the university classroom. We will discuss how stress impacts learning, differences and overlaps between healthy, normal stress, distress, and mental illness, and possible signs that indicate that a student is struggling in your classroom. Workshop attendees will leave with ideas and strategies for how to help students who are navigating through intense periods of stress, how to connect students to resources on campus, like Counseling and Psychological Services, and how to promote a culture of wellness in your classroom.
