The majority of college students with depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders do not seek treatment. Unfortunately, many students who are struggling with depressive illnesses may instead utilize unhealthy coping mechanisms – including drinking, drug use, and self-injurious behaviors – to help manage their symptoms. Join us for the 11th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings and model programs to help campuses better identify students who may be “self-medicating” or engaging in other harmful behaviors, and support these students in moving toward healthy self-management and effective treatment.This conference is targeted to students, parents, and professionals who work with college students in any capacity (including psychologists, physicians, nurses, counselors, university leaders, administrators, faculty, academic advisors, student affairs and housing staff, and other educational specialists).
Rackham Graduate School, 915 East Washington Street. Registration is FREE for all students from any institution. Registration fee for non-students is $130 before February 1st, and $145 after February 1st. firstname.lastname@example.org www.depressioncenter.org/docc [map]
