Implementing a Stepped Care 2.0 Model for student mental health services doesn’t have to mean starting from scratch.

Implementing a Stepped Care 2.0 Model for student mental health services doesn’t have to mean starting from scratch.

Giving every student an assessment and 50-minute counseling session is no longer sustainable given the high volume of students needing mental health services. You are likely looking for new ways of delivering quality care to meet your students’ needs and manage your resources.

Join us online to learn how the Stepped Care 2.0 Model may be one possible solution for your counseling center. Dr. Peter Cornish, a leader in the model, will debunk common myths and provide an overview of the key components of the model, including how to:

  • Preserve your existing care network
  • Train your providers
  • Monitor outcomes
  • Message and market new services

What is Stepped Care 2.0?

Not sure whether this webcast is right for you? The Stepped Care 2.0 Model is a multi-tier system which expands care options and programs. It includes low-cost and low-intensity resources (sometimes outside the counseling center) to ensure students get access to the help they need — when and where they need it. Learn more about the Stepped Care 2.0 Model here.

Who Should Attend

This webcast is ideal for Directors of Counseling Centers, Supervisors of Counseling/Assistance Centers, and any others involved in student mental health services — such as Deans of Students and Vice Presidents of Student Affairs.
