The University of Minnesota Twin Cities Education Abroad Network includes and serves professional advisers, faculty members, administrators, and others involved with education abroad. Meetings will be organized and convened twice a year by the Learning Abroad Center, but the agenda will be open to issues and topics identified by the entire group and relevant to a majority of participants. Preference will be given to sharing of practices, benchmarking, and updates to foster communication and expanded, multidisciplinary collaboration in regard to study abroad.
Student Mental Health Concerns and Study Abroad
Tuesday, May 7, 2019
402 Walter Library, East Bank
How can we support students with mental health concerns as they prepare for a study abroad experience? How does the Learning Abroad Center prepare students to ensure that mental health needs will be met while abroad? A successful experience abroad requires proactive preparation, which includes completing health information forms and encouraging disclosure. During this interactive session, the Learning Abroad Center will share what is already in place and how can we work together to support students through effective referrals and sharing of resources.
Following brief presentations, and audience Q&A, we hope participants expand their comfort level in discussing mental health abroad considerations with students. All faculty and staff are welcome to attend. Join us! RSVP here.
