The mental health epidemic continues to impact students and professionals within the academia world. The stigma of mental health within the classroom is due in part to the lack of knowledge about proper identification and how it impacts systems, classroom retention and successful completion. This workshop aims to ignite a necessary conversation and provide tools to appropriately honor mental wellness within the classroom.
