Mental Health and Wellness Summit Resources

The GLCA hosted a Presidential Summit on Mental Health and Wellness in December 2019.  Mental health and wellness are issues that touch all of us, regardless of what role we have on our campuses. The summit was an opportunity to meet as a consortium to deepen our understanding, learn from experts, and from one another.

The motto for the summit was Learn, Share, Do.   Learn: Learn from outside speakers and panelists and from each other.   Share: Share with others in similar positions and through informal exchange of ideas, networking, and benchmarking.   Do: Campus teams work together on a campus-based plan of action.  This summary and resources page continues our work of learning and sharing.
