Town and Gown II: Countering Stigma and Continuity of Care for College Students
in the Savannah / Statesboro Region
November 19, 2014 Savannah State University, Village Rec Room 11:30 until 1:00
The second annual joint meeting of the Clinical Social Work Association of Savannah (CSWA-S) and the Georgia College Counseling Association (GCCA).
Last year’s joint meeting addressed what colleges needed from community clinicians and facilities in terms of ensuring continuity of care. This year’s focus will be on what community providers need from colleges to achieve the same goal. Please come prepared to contribute to the discussion with information about your practice, agency, or facility and with ideas about how area colleges can help community providers provide better care to college students in our region.
The formal presentation, prior to the discussion, will highlight some of the fun and creative approaches that college counseling centers are using to destigmatize utilization of mental health and disability services.
If you work with college students, or family members, in the Savannah/Statesboro region you will benefit from this opportunity to find out about creative approaches to destigmatize utilization of mental health services and find out about treatment options available at colleges and in the community. This is also a prime opportunity to network with others who serve this population.
Complimentary lunch will be available for the first 48 advance registrants. $7.75 thereafter. Lunch and networking from 11:30 to 12. Reservations needed for lunch.
Presentation and discussion 12 to 1.
(Please come earlier if you wish. Doors open at 11.)
Free CE awarded to social workers and professional counselors by CSWAS and GCCA who are members of GCCA or CSWAS. Cost for non-members $35.
Membership applications available for both organizations at the meeting.
Registration needed in advance or at the door for CE certificates.
