Self-Advocacy, Agency and Resilience

“College students are currently living through multiple losses due to the pandemic. They also continue to grapple with issues such as institutionalized racism, financial challenges and an unrelenting news stream, much of it not positive… It’s a fluid situation that requires them to be flexible and adaptive on a day-to-day basis.”

– Amy Nitza, Director of the Institute for Disaster Mental Health (IDMH) and Associate Professor of Psychology at the State University of New York at New Paltz

Students today have a wide array of mental and emotional health concerns that have been exacerbated by these uncertain times. Their emotional well-being is precarious, their energy is compromised and their attention is diverted. You’ve seen it: they’re struggling. And the reality is that no amount of time, care and energy from faculty and staff members can give students everything they need.

Help students develop their own effective coping skills and internal strengths so they can be resilient now and in the future. The new How to Help Students Gain Effective Coping Skills training package provides practical tools, ideas, resources and strategies to help students practice self-agency as they face pandemic-related fallout. Actively help students explore and practice the coping skills that work best for them so they can persist and thrive both in school and beyond.
