Mental Health First Aid Training Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Who: Alpine Campus – Faculty and Staff

What: Mental Health First Aid

When: Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Where: UC 210 (coffee and pastries provided)

POC: Mary Schwartze Grisham 432-837-8203

Description: Looking out for each other is everyone’s job.  Because we live in a small town and work on a small campus, warning signs are often our tools for recognizing when someone is needing support or in mental health crisis.  In order to be effective, however, we need to empower ourselves with knowledge in recognizing warning signs and practice in referring or getting someone help.  The Counseling and Accessibility Office would like to work to strengthen our community’s knowledge and confidence in learning about mental health issues.  Please join us for two half-day trainings in Mental Health First Aid.  Our goal is to have (at least) one representative attend from each department with a second class to be offered this summer.  We will cover topics such as depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and suicide prevention.  For more information, click HERE.  Send questions and RSVP to mschwartze@sulross.edu.

First Study-A-Thon Looks for Faculty and Staff Volunteers

We are very excited to announce the first SRSU Study-A-Thon will take place Thursday, May 9 (the Dead Day before finals week).  The Study-A-Thon committee has been reaching out to different departments on campus looking for faculty to help, but WE NEED YOUR HELP too!

We would like to open this opportunity to all staff and faculty.  If you have a talent you would like to share with our students and that would be beneficial at this event, contact us!  It can be anything from tutoring a subject in your field to helping out with different activities happening throughout the day.  This is an eight-hour event (from 2:00-10:00 p.m.), so we need as much help as we can get.

If you are interested in helping out Study-A-Thon, please contact Judith Loya at 432-837-8476/jloya@sulross.edu, or Patrick Clingman at 432-837-8342/pclingman@sulross.edu.
