This resource is for faculty who would like to understand how they can interact with students in ways that respect the importance of tending to their mental health and well-being, and create relationships and systems that will serve us well in times of distress or crisis. It is also a guide for proactively thinking about individual and classroom responses when there is a tragedy on or off campus that affects us all.

In addition to this guide, Tufts offers an online education tool, called Kognito, that can help you learn to navigate mental health conversations. It is a 30 - 40 minute tutorial that you can repeat as often as you would like. It requires you to create an account the first time you log in.
