Handling Emotional and Life-Challenging Problems (HELP!) With College Students: The Faculty-Staff Dilemma

College students face a variety of issues today that were not as prevalent on college campuses in previous decades. In addition, college campuses are expected to address these issues, and faculty and staff play a key role in meeting that expectation. This session will introduce faculty and staff to protocols and resources that can be used when students face a critical incident or their behavior poses a concern.
