New Quadcast: Ep. 40
In this week’s Quadcast, UMass Chan Medical School’s Dr. Maryann Davis gives practical advice on how campus stakeholders can better support students with mental health conditions.
Maryann Davis, Ph.D. is a professor of psychiatry at the UMass Chan Medical School and the Director of the Implementation Science & Practice Advances Research Center (iSPARC) and the Transitions to Adulthood Center for Research (Transitions ACR).
She discusses the challenges students with mental illness face in their journey towards a college degree and how campus community members, particular faculty, can better understand and support these students. Transitions ACR recently released a video guide series with faculty and student narratives that help inform faculty on issues such as accommodations, reducing stigma around mental health conditions, and helping students thrive academically.
