Pressed to the Limit: An Exploration of the Impact Current Realities May Have on the Health and Well-Being of Students, Faculty, Staff, and Administrators
The mental health and well-being of students, faculty, and administrators has become increasingly important within postsecondary education, and the need to consider and react to national conditions during the past year has become tantamount. For each of these three perspectives, definitive information may not always be available, as many regions are still grappling with the effects of the pandemic, political turmoil, and social unrest. At times it may feel that stability on all levels is not ensured, as ramifications from these effects remain uncertain and ever-changing.

The problems faced by students, faculty, and administrators suggest that institution-wide initiatives focusing on the development of specific approaches which assist in the maintenance and care of one’s mental health are of vital importance. These approaches could offer to individuals help in defining their breaking points, providing guidance and support to others, and recognizing when there is a critical need for help. Attendees will consider how the issues above may/will affect the capacity of individuals under and facing such pressures to function, endure, move forward, succeed, and flourish, particularly when confronting a cycle of frustration, confusion, worry, anger, and anxiety.
