CFERR national virtual Mental Health Summit

October 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am 12:30 pm

Hosted by the Association of Public and Land Grant Universities’ Commission on Food, Environment, and Renewable Resources (CFERR).

“In this unprecedented time, we are witnessing mental health challenges playing out across our nation, impacting all communities and creating stress and hardship across all sectors of society. Making available science-based mental health resources to our communities and institutions has never been more important.” During this webinar, each CFERR Board will have 15-minutes to share what they are doing within their disciplines to address concerns about mental health and well-being across sectors of American life.

CFERR anticipates “3 major outcomes from this Summit: Sharing and gathering of mental health resources by sector; development of a white paper at the conclusion of the Summit that allows each Board to provide “expert” commentary on the topic and links to resources available to address mental health; and working with APLU to resource a website that has relevant mental health materials to provide a central location for curriculum, programs and best practices that can be accessed by all APLU member schools”.
