March 12-13, 2014
Ann Arbor, Michigan
How do colleges and universities define “success” for their students? While GPA is a traditional benchmark of student success, there are there other outcomes which may be more important for long-term student wellbeing. Research shows that symptoms of depression predict retention and graduation rates, and mentally healthy students are better learners – so it follows that supporting student mental health benefits the entire campus.
Join us for the 12th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings and model programs which demonstrate how a focus on improving student mental health can benefit student success in all areas of the college experience — emotionally, physically, socially, and academically — and allow students to achieve their full potential.
The conference will feature a choice of intensive three-hour workshops in addition to keynote presentations, panel discussions, and concurrent sessions. The conference will run from 12:30-6:00 on March 12, and from 8:30-4:00 on March 13.
Registration is FREE for all students from any campus, but a registration form is still required. The registration fee for non-students is $130 (before February 14th) or $150 after February 14th for the two-day conference. The registration fee will include a reception and poster session on March 12, and continental breakfast on March 13.
Groups of five or more non-students registering together will receive a discount of $10 per individual registration (before March 1st only).
A banquet lunch on Thursday, March 13th (with presentation of the Student Mental Health Advocate Award) is an additional $15 for all participants including students.
