Supporting Students in Distress

facilitated by: Ray Fellar, Assistant Dean, Student Support Services (S^3) and Jimmy Doan, Assistant Dean, CARE Team

At MIT, it is often difficult for students to ask for help. Teacher Assistants are in a unique position to identify and support students who are in distress. Your attention to detail and expression of concern could make a major difference for your students. Please join us for a workshop on how to recognize signs of distress and what you can do to help support your students and peers.

Date: Friday, February 23, 2018
Time: 1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
Location: 56-154

Student Support Services S^3 is a friendly and easily accessible hub of support for MIT students. Whether you are struggling with a pset because of something going on in your life, you feel too ill to take an exam, you are considering taking time away from the Institute, or you just don’t know who to talk to, we can help.

The CARE Team (Coordination, Assistance, Response, and Education) is a team of staff who support all students through challenges they may experience during their time at MIT. While MIT has many resources to support students, the CARE Team recognizes it can often be overwhelming for students to navigate all of the support available to them.
