Webinar Series: International Students & Mental Health

Commission for Global Dimensions of Student Development
10 April 2019 - 12:00pm to 30 April 2019 - 4:00pm
Mental health issues are on the rise among all college students, including international students. Some of the unique challenges international students face – such as language barriers, acculturative stress, unrealistic expectations, crises originating at home – can also lead to or increase mental health issues. How issues of mental health are addressed, however, varies depending on societal and cultural understandings and contexts. To serve our international populations, Student Affairs practitioners need to understand the unique challenges international students face, learn how to refer students to mental health resources in a culturally appropriate way, and gain insights into ways they can proactively address international students’ mental health. Join us for this unique 4-part event brought to you by ACPA's Commission for Global Dimensions of Student Development and co-sponsored by the Commission for Counseling and Psychological Services, and the Commission for Housing and Residential Life . Participants who attend at least 3 of our 4 one-hour Webinars will receive a Certificate of Completion.
