Anxiety and Depression Panel Discussion: Outline and Questions

 

Anxiety and Depression Panel Discussion: Finding Help

Overall Panel Discussion Outline

 

Welcome to Drinko Library. Our topic for today's panel is anxiety and depression.

Will each of our panelists introduce themselves and speak a bit about your education and experience in either working with or experiencing anxiety and depression?

 

Group start off questions:

 

What is your best suggestion for destigmatizing mental illness and learning disabilities amongst students, faculty, and staff?

How do issues like anxiety and depression both interfere with school work and inform and motivate school work. All research tends to be personal so how do we help students build a bridge between their lived experiences and their academic line of inquiry?

What can Marshall do to support students with anxiety and depression in creative ways?

How can we empower students to get outside their own frame of reference and get outside to help their peers?

 What are the most common barriers to seeking treatment?

 

Dr. Mark Hettlinger:

 

What are the best ways for patients to seek treatment from their doctor?

What are some of the best ways to treat anxiety and depression outside of medication?

In your medical practice, have you come across patients or people in the public who don't believe anxiety and depression are real medical conditions? What do you say to them?

 

John McCormick:

 

What do you wish people knew about anxiety and depression while going to school?

With your experience working on campus, what are ways that your department has helped students suffering from depression and anxiety?

 

Kristin Cookson:

 

How have you worked or are working to overcome your anxiety and depression?

How does your personal experience inform your school work and work with Golden Girls?

 

Dr. Aaron Upton

 

For our students who are veterans suffering from anxiety and depression, how can we best help them?

What are some of the other effects that you may see from prolonged and untreated anxiety and depression?

 

Stephanie Ballou

 

What types of services does the Help Program offer to students suffering from anxiety and depression?

Are there specific study techniques for students suffering from anxiety and depression?
