The AUCCCO annual conference Don’t Stop Believing is centered around recommitting to the work we do as mental health practitioners and outreachers within counseling centers and higher education. Dr. Hsu will address social justice themes for outreach, building community and self-care. Participants will leave with practical skills on building productive community with cultural humility while identifying and addressing the collective mental health needs on our campuses. Participants will understand how the themes of social justice, well-being and community intersect. The format will include a talk and an interactive workshop. The hope is that participates leave motivated to continue our work with some applicable tools and enhanced skills in community interventions.
