Health and Wellness Services offers a number of in-person professional development opportunities to enhance team dynamics, support students and improve our campus community. Here are a few that are currently being offered for the spring semester:

Supporting Student Resiliency

The Supporting Student Resiliency Professional Development Series provides CU faculty and staff with concrete skills to better support students. Offered by several departments in the Division of Student Affairs, sessions focus on areas critical to student retention and success.

Faculty and staff can attend any individual session, or participants who attend all six will receive a non-degree certificate. Learn more and find session times online at the Health and Wellness training site.

Mental Health First Aid

Mental Health First Aid training helps a person with no clinical training assist someone experiencing a mental health crisis. This training covers a 5-step strategy to assess and support someone in crisis. Participants are also introduced to risk factors and warning signs, engage in experiential activities, and learn about evidence-supported treatment and self-help strategies. Learn more and view the schedule online at the Health and Wellness training site.

Mental Health First Aid is also available by request for CU departments and student groups.
