HRD 500 - College Mental Health

This course is focused on college mental health and the application of theory and practice to understand, intervene and enhance student mental health in a college environment. We will focus on mental health through an ecological theoretical model which views socio-historical conditions, campus community systems, and individual developmental, social and psychological factors as determinants to student growth and success. Particular focus will be given to interrelated protective and risk factors across the various levels of systemic complexity. Individual and wider systemic influences and approaches will be explored. In addition, students will be given an opportunity to contribute to the mental health of the college community through engaging in campus mental health and other related initiatives. This course will be open to: graduate students studying higher education or counselor education, and senior undergraduate students possibly pursuing a career in higher education or counseling.
