Presented by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health, the More Feet on the Ground (MFOTG): Recognize, Respond, Refer and Reflect Trainer Workshop is aimed at trainers who want to learn how to deliver MFOTG course on their campus. The MFOTG course prepares campus staff and student leaders to support students on campus who may be living with mental health concerns.
Participants will learn to:
- RECOGNIZE indicators that a student may be experiencing mental health concerns;
- RESPOND appropriately to a student who needs support, based on the indicators present and your relationship with the student;
- REFER students to mental health supports and services in an appropriate way; and
- REFLECT after interacting with a student who may be upset or distressed.
Please note that this workshop is for staff who wish to learn how to deliver the MFOTG training on their campus. There is no pre-work needed, but it is encouraged that you take a look at the MFOTG site to familiarize yourself with some of the themes and see what your future participants/trainees might be expected to learn. https://morefeetontheground.ca
During the workshop, different ways to deliver MFOTG on your campus will be discussed, you will be provided with a facilitator’s guide, examples of exercises that you can use in your training sessions, and some of the FAQs that have arisen in other training sessions will be discussed.
