APSY 7205 College Student Mental Illness: Campus Responses (Summer: 1 )
From the groundbreaking Shin suicide case at MIT to the tragedy of the Virginia Tech shootings, issues surrounding mental health strategies and policies on college campuses have risen significantly in the past two decades. As a result higher education professionals have needed to increase their understanding to work with, and work for, a population that has surged exponentially. Unlike courses using counseling theories for clinical practitioners, this course will prepare participants for program management and policy development that meets the safety, legal, community, and individual needs related to campus mental health issues. The goal is to deliver a solid, practical foundation for administrators dealing with this complex matter.
