Building Resilience - Upcoming Mental Health Seminar
The third seminar in the Spring 2023 Mental Health Seminar Series, "Building Resilience: Strategies for Getting Through Challenging Times," will be held April 12th from 12 - 1:30 pm, on Zoom.
The end of the semester can feel challenging with the many demands on campus, in your social circles, and with your personal responsibilities – especially when paired with the looming transition to summer. Building resilience can help you navigate these difficult transition periods and emerge stronger on the other side. Join us for a mental health seminar presented by Dr. Sarah Rieves-Houston, Director of the Behavioral Health Springboard, to learn research-informed strategies to be more resilient during times of challenge.
Dr. Sarah Rieves-Houston serves as the director of Behavioral Health Springboard in the UNC School of Social Work. She holds an MS in Human Development from NCCU, a Masters in Education from ECU, a Ph.D. in Education from Capella University, and is ABD on a PsyD in Clinical Psychology with a focus on childhood trauma and resilience from California Southern University. Rieves is certified as a family trauma specialist and as a child and adolescent trauma specialist.
The Mental Health Seminar series is open to students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, faculty, and staff. The series creates a space for learning, reflecting on, and discussing mental health. This year's seminars focus on research-to-practice, giving the audience both the science behind mental health and strategies they can employ right now. The overall goal is to empower all campus community members to help influence campus mental health and well-being. Join us!
