Mental Health in the Field: Best Practices and Pitfalls


The goal of this workshop is to increase your awareness of the impact of offsite activities on mental health. We will give a presentation on common problems associated with mental health in the field, looking at small to large group teaching and research expeditions. Some case examples will be given, with an explanation of how the field situation may impact mental health, why, and possible mitigation strategies.  Several scenarios will be presented, and groups will be encouraged to discuss, assess and come up with possible solutions.
