Empowering Carolina Spring 2019 Program
April 2, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Mental health topics continue to play a big role in national workforce conversations—and campus conversations. Based on the feedback we received from those who attended our fall Empowering Carolina Event on Mental Health and Well-Being, there is interest in more training and education about this topic. Accordingly, we are going to continue the conversation at our spring Empowering Carolina event. Join us for a dialogue and panel discussion about Mental Health and Well-Being on Tuesday, April 2, 2019, from 12:30 – 2:00 pm in the Blue Zone at Kenan Stadium. A buffet lunch will be served starting at 12:00 pm.
This year’s program includes:
- A report on the Mental Health Task Force convened by Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost Bob Blouin, to be presented by Interim Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs, Christi Hurt;
- An update about the Mental Health First Aid program from Clinical Associate Professor, Jodi Flick; and
- An announcement of UNC’s new “Count Me In” Campaign, promoting the Voluntary Self-Identification of Disabilities by ADA Coordinator, Rudy Jones.
There will also be a panel discussion on the campus programs and resources available to support mental health and wellness, with representatives from Accessibility Resources and Service (ARS), Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS), the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), the Equal Opportunity and Compliance Office (EOC), Student Mental Health Coalition and the Work-life Wellness unit in the Office of Human Resources. The audience will have an opportunity to interact with the panel in a lively question and answer session at the end of the program.
This event is open to all UNC faculty, staff, and students. If you or anyone in your department is interested in attending this event, please RSVP at http://go.unc.edu/empoweringcarolina2019-spring. The event is also open to the public, and we ask those planning to attend to RSVP as well. The deadline for registering for this event is March 19, 2019.
