In order to help our faculty and staff respond to the mental health needs of our students, the Counseling Center will be offering workshops exclusively for UMD faculty and staff throughout the fall semester.

Our Helping Students in Distress Workshop will address common student mental health concerns, ways to communicate about mental health with students, available mental health resources (including the Counseling Center) and how to refer to them, and methods of coping for everyone involved. Here is the Zoom link.

The workshop will be held the First Friday of each month (9/4, 10/2, 11/6, 12/4) from 12-1pm. Though advanced registration is not required, you will be prompted to register with your name and email address in order to receive the meeting link. Please note that the Zoom meetings will close to new participants 15 minutes after the start time of the workshop.
