MENTAL HEALTH FOR STUDENTS & PRACTITIONERS 

Nov. 17, 2019 | 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
Member Fee: $495 | Non-Member Fee: $575

In this two-part workshop, participants will spend the first half of the day learning skills to talk about the unthinkable: suicide. We hope that you never have to have this conversation, but the fact is, students seeks out advisors when they are in distress and need guidance and one day the topic might be suicide. This session will help advisors learn how to be prepared to have that conversation. In the afternoon, the focus will be on advisors and how to identify sources of stress; reframe the situation; and build a toolkit to help more positively manage stressful situations.
