2018 Depression on College Campuses Conference:

Redesigning Structures, Spaces, and Processes to Promote Wellness

March 13-14, 2018 | U-M Rackham Graduate School Building, Ann Arbor

Recent research indicates that approximately one in four college students screen positive for depression, and the demand for clinical services continues to grow. While traditional approaches remain core to our work, we must also explore how environmental strategies can be used as part of a comprehensive approach to create a campus culture and learning environment that supports mental health. 

Join us for the 16th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings, innovative design initiatives, model programs, and policies which demonstrate how redesigning the physical and social environments on a campus can reduce suicide risk and promote mental health.

Each year the Depression on College Campuses Conference hosts attendees from over 50 colleges and universities from across the nation for a focused review of recent research and practical advances in our understanding of depressive illnesses in college students. A Conference Planning Committee, co-chaired by Drs. John F. Greden, Daniel Eisenberg, and Todd Sevig, and including members from across the University of Michigan campus, will review and select all workshop, concurrent session, and poster display proposals.
