Join Active Minds, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization supporting mental health awareness and education for young adults, to explore how taking a leave of absence can affect student mental health. Hear directly from campus leaders across the countries with strategies of how they support students via their campus leave of absence policies and how their policies were established, implemented, and revised. During this one-hour workshop, you will be provided with the tools to better understand leaves of absence and the opportunity to reflect on the information provided in Taking a Leave of Absence: A Guide for Campus Leadership, Faculty, and Staff developed by the Ruderman Family Foundation.
