For many, attending college is the student’s first time to be away from home for an extended period of time. It provides new freedom, responsibility, challenges and relationships. Although these changes are exciting for a college student and her family, they can also be overwhelming and cause stress. Mental health problems can affect anyone at any time. College students have more complex problems than they did a decade ago, and many young women come to college with an existing diagnosis and treatment history.
Zeta Tau Alpha is committed to its members’ wellness and safety, so we would like to provide a training opportunity to parents about student mental health and well-being.
MentalHealthEdu is a brief, 30-minute online program that will help educate you on mental health for college students, its related laws and policies, empower you to share concerns, and how to utilize key campus resources.
In addition, because MentalHealthEdu was written for campus professionals, please utilize this TIP SHEET to further relate the program’s content to parenting.
This program takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. To take MentalHealthEdu, you will need a computer with Internet access and audio capabilities.
