Training students, faculty and others in higher education settings how to recognize the symptoms of emerging mental illnesses or to assist young adults in a mental health crisis can help lessen the severity and impact of mental illnesses.  For more information and to register contact Dolores Hess, director of Health and Wellness Services at hess@kutztown.edu.
