This week, as a third installment in the Teaching and Learning Collaborative blog series on mental health information for faculty and academic staff, meet the new and returning professional psychologists at the UP Health and Counseling Center. When we have concerns about students, who are the professionals that might help us know what to do, and who often help our students through challenging points in their college career? This week’s entry should help faculty know who to call.
