THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.

This event is open to all College of Engineering faculty. Space is limited to 20 participants. Light snacks will be served.

Research has shown that graduate students struggle with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression at higher rates than the general population. While some stress and uncertainty is unavoidable in graduate training, research mentors can have a direct impact on the well-being (emotional, physical, and mental health) of members of their research group. By fostering an environment that supports well-being, mentors can positively impact mentees’ sense of autonomy, competence, personal growth, and belonging. Developing the skills to have open conversations about these topics is key to this process.

In this interactive workshop, faculty participants will engage in discussions and activities about mentee well-being using the Fostering Well-being curricula. Participants will: (1) learn the definition of mental health and identify signs of well-being; (2) develop awareness about how mentoring behaviors can impact mentee well-being; (3) identify steps to creating an environment that fosters well-being in a diverse group of mentees; and (4) learn to initiate conversations with mentees about their well-being and mental health.
