Impact Summit: College Student Mental Health Conference

Thomas Lane, Missouri State University

February 28, 2018

Join your NASPA IV-West colleagues on May 2, 2018 at Missouri State University for the Impact Summit: College Student Mental Health Conference. The summit has been selected as our region’s spring Critical Conversation. With three national keynoters and over 30 educational sessions on a wide array of topics surrounding mental health and college students, the Summit will be a meaningful opportunity to engage with others interested in reducing stigma and increasing knowledge. The statistics demand action. According to National Data on Campus Suicide and Depression, one in every 12 college students makes a suicide plan. In Missouri alone, suicide is the third leading cause of death for those aged 10-24. Our goal for the summit is participants come away with:

  • A better understanding of important issues and concerns involving college student mental health.
  • Increased awareness of best/innovative practices and research pertaining to supporting college students with mental health concerns.
  • Connections with others interested in issues surrounding college student mental health.

To register for the conference, visit Registration for the conference is $49 per person prior to April 2nd, and $80 after. Space is limited to 300 participants. For more information, please visit the website or contact [email protected]
