College Mental Health Professionals Community of Practice (CoP): Self-Care and Wellness during COVID-19 Part 4


February 22, 2021

1:00 pm - 2:30 pm MST | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CST


2020 has brought about an increased level of stress and uncertainty for college students dealing with the impacts of COVID-19. As students' mental health needs continue to escalate, the people serving them; mental/behavioral health providers, campus mental health counselors and staff are finding themselves overwhelmed with the number and frequency of requests from both students and administrators. Without training and support, providers face increasing levels of burn-out, leaving students with the possibility of receiving even fewer critical mental health services. 

  

This CoP is designed for mental health professionals looking to learn and implement effective self-care and wellness strategies in response to the increased workload caused by COVID-19. Participants will identify a self-change project and identify 1-2 things they want to incorporate into their daily routine to promote self-care. They will track their progress throughout the series. Members of the cohort will also learn and practice coping skills and relaxation techniques that can be implemented immediately. 

 


Dates


The cohort will be comprised of four 90-minute sessions and will be limited to 12 participants. 
All sessions will begin at 1:00 pm MST – 2:30 pm MST. 

 

Session 1: January 11, 2021

Session 2: January 25, 2021

Session 3: February 8, 2021

Session 4: February 22, 2021
