Last week the School of Computing hosted a special colloquium focused on prioritizing mental health in graduate school.

John Goldrich and Mariah Johnson from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln Counseling and Psychological Services presented the talk, "Prioritizing Mental Health in Academia." Information was provided on available CAPS services, how to begin counseling services, and other relevant mental health resources available. Discussion also focused on identifying ways to prioritize well-being as well as how to respond to and support others who might be experiencing mental health distress.

This event provided a time to engage in informal conversations with CAPS counselors about mental health and well-being, and students had the opportunity to submit anonymous questions to the speakers.

Those who were unable to attend the event can now view the special lecture here.
