Now more than ever, mental health is an important topic. We are seeing significant increases in depression, anxiety and suicidal thinking among college students. We often hear from our community members that they want to help but are afraid to make things worse, violate someone’s boundaries, or simply that they don’t know how to help.

RESPOND is designed to help you recognize when mental health concerns arise, offer effective and compassionate support, hold your boundaries and make appropriate referrals. The course provides a basic overview of symptoms often associated with mental health problems and offers an action plan to help you RESPOND effectively.
