The 2020 Halias Campus Safety Symposium, hosted virtually, focused on college mental health. College campuses have seen the demand and need for mental health support and services continue to increase, especially in response to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
This year’s Campus Safety Symposium was a three-part virtual series. The goal was to support campus safety experts, New Hampshire lawmakers, higher education leaders, first responders, and educators in navigating and providing remote support and services. It was an opportunity to learn, engage in dialogue, and share resources.
Sessions were held over three days, with each day focusing on a targeted topic:
- Mental Health through Telehealth: Remote Student Engagement
- Behavioral Intervention Teams on the Socially Distanced Campus
- Student Soldiers – Supporting Veterans in a Shifting Landscape
The symposium was hosted by NHCUC, the University of New Hampshire, and Campus Compact for Southern New Hampshire.
The Halias Campus Safety Symposium is named in honor of Nicholas J. Halias, a former University of New Hampshire police chief and trustee of the Community College System of New Hampshire. Halias passed away in 2014 after serving more than 40 years in law enforcement.
