Mental Health Status Update: Developing a Social Media Presence for Student Counseling on a University Campus

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In order to improve mental health for the University of Minnesota, Morris and the surrounding areas, an online media campaign has been launched to develop awareness, destigmatize, and promote proactive mental health practices. A Facebook page has been created to serve as a tool that discusses various issues within the mental health community and provides information about how to contact available counseling resources. Historically, a mental health Facebook presence at UMM has not existed. A new media source that students are more comfortable with could better impact the student body and surrounding area. Facebook is a popular platform that allows for the creation of webpage like content within the realm of social media. Additionally, this page serves as an independent resource for Student Counseling Services to reach out to the student body in a manner consistent with the current technology. Furthermore, the group created a series of videos with topics surrounding stress reduction, anxiety relief, and proactivity in mental health. The curated videos, as part of an on-going process towards mental health promotion, include various elements of mental health including, but not limited to: stress, coping strategies for stress and anxiety, and proactivity in mental health.
