Staff and faculty are invited to participate in a workshop hosted by Kristen Carney, our embedded CAPS counselor, and other CAPS colleagues, on how to support students in distress.
This workshop will provide key factors to look for in a student who may be struggling with their mental health and how to support in a compassionate and constructive way. Presenters from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) will provide effective strategies to initiate difficult conversations with a student of concern while working in a remote setting. Campus student mental health resources and crisis consultation services for staff and faculty will also be discussed.
Kristen Carney is a clinical social worker at the University of Michigan's Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). She is embedded at the Ford School and School of Education.
