Nathaan Demers is a clinical psychologist in Colorado working with a multidisciplinary team to support student health, well-being, and success. The presentation will provide an overview of the intersectionality of substance use, mental health (including the increasing prevalence of loneliness), well-being and student success – aspects of the student experience which are often incorrectly viewed, researched, and/or programmatically addressed as independent variables. Insights from his team’s experience will be shared in a case study format highlighting the essential aspects of meeting students on their terms to provide effective scalable interventions to promote health on campus.
Join a conversation about a hot topic on campus while networking with other institutions!
