Event description

Description

Please note that this seminar is for UC Davis faculty. Please refer to our event calendar for a list of events for students and postdoctoral scholars.

A recent study reported that approximately one-third of Ph.D. students are at risk of having or developing a common psychiatric disorder like depression. The ability to conduct difficult conversations about mental health and wellness is critical to the success of a faculty mentor. Though the need for these conversations is often clear, addressing sensitive issues can be daunting. In the third event of the 2017-2018 Faculty Mentor Seminar Series, a panel of UC Davis experts will provide strategies for conducting difficult conversations with graduate student mentees about mental health.

Discover new methods and strategies for making the most out of your faculty-student mentoring relationship and get a head start on establishing eligibility for next year's Mentoring at Critical Transitions Wakeham Fellowship.

FAQs

Will this event count toward my eligibility for the MCT Wakeham Fellowship?

Yes. To be eligible to apply, faculty mentors must attend at least three of the five MCT workshops or panels offered during the 2017-2018 academic year.

Can I send a colleague or a graduate student mentee in my place?

Attendance by faculty colleagues or graduate student mentees, in lieu of the faculty mentor 's attendance, will not count toward MCT Wakeham Fellowship eligibility. Each faculty mentor must attend in person.

Where can I get more information about the MCT seminar series and fellowship program?

More information about both the seminar series and the fellowship program can be found on the UC Davis Graduate Studies Website.
