Top Hat Engage 2020 | Teaching with Empathy Breakout Session
Prioritizing Mental Health in Higher Ed Curriculum: Lessons from Oregon State University


An epidemic of the 21st century, mental illness has its highest onset levels in the 18–24 demographic—a population that is also the most reluctant to seek help. Oregon State University professors Erica Woekel and Dan Roberson know this all too well. Oregon has the highest incidences of mental health issues in the country, and their institution has reported steep rates of depression and anxiety among their student population.In this talk, Woekel and Roberson discuss their work with counselling andpsychological services at OSU to revise and—at the request of students—incorporate more mental health content into their mandatory 1,900+ student course. Learn how their ground-breaking efforts are reducing the stigma around mental health and providing critical resources to those in need.

Speakers:

Erica Woekel, Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University
Dan Roberson, Public Health and Human Sciences, Oregon State University
