The Role of Faculty in Student Mental Health

April 8, 2021

This 90-minute webinar presents the findings of a recent national pilot study examining the perceptions and behaviors of college and university faculty as they relate to supporting student mental health and substance use. A partnership between the Mary Christie Foundation, the Healthy Minds Network, the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, and faculty at the Boston University School of Public Health, this webinar includes a presentation of topline results by Principal Investigator Sarah K. Lipson, Ph.D. The survey findings provide policy-relevant information including faculty’s experiences supporting students in distress during the COVID-19 pandemic, sense of responsibility to provide guidance and referrals for students around mental health, and needs and preferences in terms of future trainings.
