Uncovering Resilience in Students with Mental Health Concerns: A Case Study

Learn how to create an aspirational resilience program for students with mental health concerns.

In today’s higher education landscape, a growing number of students are struggling with decreasing resilience, which frequently harms their academic performance and collegiate experience. As this trend continues to prevail, there is a growing realization that student resilience must be discussed holistically, with special focus on mental health. Well-being and resilience should be considered as critical components of a student’s academic and vocational success.

In response to this issue, a handful of institutions are leading the way in creating and implementing innovative programs that address the relationship between mental health and resilience—by helping students improve skills related to emotional fortitude, grit, and social support.

Join us for this webcast to learn how UMass Amherst has developed a new evidence and strengths-based healthcare program to enhance students’ resilience skills and help them flourish even in the face of mental illness. Participants will learn both short and long-term ways to implement a similar program on their respective campuses.
