Faculty are on the frontline assisting and supporting our students. Your work goes beyond the classroom and office hours. The FED recognizes that as we support you with the work-life balance we also need skills and resources to help you and your students in the classroom when faced with those who appear to be struggling emotionally and mentally.
Throughout the year the FED conducts professional development in collaboration with CAPS, UH Wellness, and Student Services. Here are a few resources regarding mental health at UH and in our collaborative communities.
- Suicide and Crisis Lifeline - 988
- Suicide Prevention Training: Question, Persuade, Refer (QPR)
- Conduct Assessment and Response Team (CART) – complete an incident report form for students who present concerning behaviors in the classroom.
- UH Wellness - Certificate in Mental Health First Aid trains faculty and staff on how to respond to suicidal students.
