To recognize outstanding student leadership in the area of campus mental health, the University of Michigan has created the Student Mental Health Advocate Award. In 300 words or less we ask nominators to describe how this student has helped to create a healthier campus community which fosters student success by:
The U-M Depression on College Campuses Conference Planning Committee will review the nominations and select a recipient. The Committee will pay travel expenses for the recipient to attend the conference, and present the award during the banquet lunch on Thursday, March 14.
In addition, the person who nominates the selected student will receive free registration and hotel accommodations for the conference.
Deadline for nominations is January 14, 2019. The award recipient will be notified by January 30, 2019.
As counseling centers continue to be faced with an ever-increasing demand for services, colleges and universities must consider more effective and efficient strategies for providing support to a large population of students with unique and varying needs. Emerging strategies include precision health and stepped care approaches to better determine and provide the “right intervention for the right person at the right time.”
Join us for the 17th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings, model programs, and policies which highlight evidence-based approaches to identify and determine the level of intervention required to best match student need to improve health outcomes.Learning Objectives Audience Continuing Education
