Not Just Students: Teaching and Research Faculty Living with Short and Long-Term Mental Health Issues

Universities are paying more and more attention to student mental health, but there is not yet a parallel conversation about mental health issues among university and college faculty and instructors. Depression, anxiety, and other issues remain highly stigmatized, and universities either lack a commitment or the capacity to change how we think about and respond. Drawing on my own struggles with depression and anxiety, I offer this workshop as an opportunity to create a safe and welcoming space for us to speak about this often hidden part of our lives, and to consider together ways we can makes these conversations possible at our own institutions.
