One Size Does Not Fit All: Aligning Levels of Care to Student Mental Health Needs

March 13-14, 2019 | U-M Rackham Graduate School Building, Ann Arbor

Call for Posters - Due Nov. 19, 2018.

Submit Poster

Poster proposals are now being accepted for the 17th annual University of Michigan Depression on College Campuses Conference, which will take place March 13-14, 2019 in Ann Arbor, Michigan. You are invited to submit proposals for poster displays relating to the conference theme of “One Size Does Not Fit All: Aligning Levels of Care to Student Mental Health Needs.” The poster session and networking reception will take place on March 13 from 5:15-6:15 p.m.

The 2019 Depression on College Campuses Conference will explore evidence-based approaches to identifying and determining the level of intervention required to best match student need. As counseling centers are continuing to be faced with an ever increasing demand for services, colleges and universities must consider more effective and efficient strategies for providing support to a large population of students with unique and varying needs. Emerging strategies include precision health and stepped care approaches to better determine and provide the “right intervention for the right person at the right time.”

To this end, we are looking for poster presentations on model programs, policies, and research studies that highlight how institutions can assess and provide support in more effective and efficient ways based on individual need to improve student outcomes. Example interventions may include new approaches to identification, disease prevention and health promotion, online interventions, counseling, and suicide prevention strategies.

Each year the Depression on College Campuses Conference hosts attendees from over 50 colleges and universities from across the nation for a focused review of recent research and practical advances in our understanding of depressive illnesses in college students. A Conference Planning Committee, co-chaired by Drs. John F. Greden, Daniel Eisenberg, and Todd Sevig, and including members from across the University of Michigan campus, will review and select all proposals.

The submission deadline is Monday, November 19, 2018.
