As you no doubt remember, college can be an exciting time full of change and new experiences. But it also can be a stressful time because of those changes and new experiences.
Treating this transitional age group often falls into the gap of pediatric and adult care, which can present challenges to physicians and other health care professionals. As such, many pediatric and adult psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers feel unprepared to manage college students’ unique needs.
To help you understand the developmental tasks, social considerations, biological changes, and systems of care specific to college students, tune in to the Texas Medical Association’s new webinar When Mental Health Goes to College.
The webinar will address current trends in college mental health, campus suicide, and serving diverse student populations. The challenges and advantages of providing mental health services in times of crisis, such as COVID-19, also will be discussed.
It is accredited for 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.
As with most of TMA’s CME programs, the webinar is free for TMA members and their practice staff thanks to a generous sponsorship by the Texas Medical Association Insurance Trust.
