How to Capitalize on Supporting Graduate Student Mental Health
The need to support graduate student mental health has been profiled as our graduate students struggle with the many challenges associated with our present time and circumstances. This session is designed to give Graduate School Deans an understanding of the different determinants of graduate student mental health and to showcase the shared responsibility of being active campus partners. We will also discuss strategies that have been endorsed through the CGS Initiative to Support Graduate Student Mental Health and Wellness. The bulk of our time will be spent sharing and listening to other institutions that have found meaningful ways to support graduate student mental health, including discussions on challenging mentoring situations, destigmatizing help-seeking behavior, the intersectionality of identities as related to graduate student experiences, and more. The goal of this session is to help develop a set of best practice initiatives within our attendees to share with other institutions.
