DESCRIPTION OF TRAINING

Awareness of mental health issues is becoming increasingly important for those who work with international students who are studying at our campuses and who live in our communities.  Addressing mental health is critical in avoiding crises. Knowledge of the various challenges and basic intervention methods enables organizations to identify and assist vulnerable people so they can fully and safely participate on campus and in the extended community. This training serves as an introduction to mental health challenges.  Participants will learn how to respond to international students facing difficulties and guide them towards the appropriate solutions and support.

This workshop outlines basic information and intervention strategies for anxiety disorders, depression, and thoughts of suicide, psychosis, eating disorders, and ADHD. Participants will learn techniques, tools, and skills to intervene effectively to ensure their safety.

TRAINING OBJECTIVES

•   Learn to recognize the main manifestations associated with mental health difficulties.
