The below resources are intended to inform and assist Faculty and Staff at New College in supporting students and their mental health and well-being. 

New College is committed to providing training opportunities for faculty, instructors and staff which will help them to: 

  • look for early warning signs for students experiencing mental health difficulties;
  • recognize when a student may be in distress;  
  • refer students in distress to either on-campus or off-campus resources.
