Student Affairs and Campus Life would like to invite the campus community to join us on December 12 from 2-3:30 in Clark Lounge for this important webinar.

Campuses are seeing a growing spectrum of student mental health behaviors ranging from disruptive behavior, to substance induced violence and psychotic outbursts. A well-defined “scope of care” is critical for institutions to protect themselves from potential lawsuits.

Responsible schools provide mental health resources and find it more important than ever to distinctly define the scope of mental health care they can and will provide. Clearly defined scope of care will mitigate unrealistic service expectations that parents and students have on your limited resources and help protect your staff from burnout.

Join our expert presenters, Dr. Greg Eells (Cornell University) and Dr. Jihad Aziz (Virginia Commonwealth University) as they guide you in exploring and identifying the evolving expectations of today’s campus mental health services and some of the ways expectations have increased for services. You’ll be able to effectively communicate an agreed upon scope of care to help shift the expectations of your campus community, as well as to prepare for implications for services and staffing. 


Dr. Gregory Eells holds a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and is currently licensed as a psychologist by the State of New York. 

Dr. Jihad Aziz currently serves as the Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) counseling center. 

Topics Covered:

As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Create clear, well-defined scope of care policies to address mental health issues — alleviate uncertainty regarding reasonable care.
  • Effectively communicate an agreed upon scope of care to help shift the expectations of your campus community.
  • Develop and/or implement programs to discuss student mental health issues with faculty and staff — to ensure accurate reporting, eliminate confusion over disclosure and to add additional support to those in need.
  • Discuss innovative programs to reduce barriers to students seeking help —enhance connections to safeguard students get the support they need.
  • Adapt existing resources for mental health care and health care to improve students’ experience of care.
