Title: I'm Not That Kind of Guy: Reframing Mental Health Services For Male Students
Lead Presenter: Emily Howsley
Date: October 07, 2021    Time: 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Room: 263, DECC
Abstract: In this discussion-based session, participants will focus on addressing male college student mental health and reported reasons to be reluctant or opposed to seeking help. Participants will be encouraged to self-reflect and challenge their implicit biases around mental health issues within the intersectionality of social, organizational, and cultural systems. Additionally, the session will include evidence-based strategies for participants to implement in their practice. Participants will learn techniques on successfully starting and continuing a conversation to encourage male and male-identifying students to seek professional mental health services, while acknowledging the concentric circles of identity in which students may subscribe. While this session is designed to address male avoidance of therapy, there will be practices discussed which can be applied towards any student who is resistant to the idea of engaging in counseling.
