Shifting Resiliency in the Classroom
The COVID-19 pandemic ushered in many challenges for college students, including increases in alcohol and substance use and reductions in mental health. Despite increased behavioral health needs, college students report numerous barriers to accessing traditional college counseling and mental health services. Moreover, low behavioral health literacy can limit students’ capacity to seek help. The college classroom can be an entry point for prevention but has remained an untapped resource. Given this, this project adapts and pilots an existing evidence-based intervention (Resiliency Training for Healthcare Professionals) in undergraduate classroom settings to promote the student well-being.
