Mental Health Awareness: Ending the Stigma on Campus

One out of five college students is affected by mental illness. It’s a growing problem across college campuses. Having informed and prepared faculty along with students can help keep mental health resources available on campus.

Join GPTC’s own Dr. Laklieshia Izzard, a member of our psychology faculty, at any one of three presentations about ways faculty and students can be more aware of the tools available to foster a culture of acceptance for those who live with mental illness.
