Anonymous Support Webinar

Monday, August 5, 5pm MDT

Some topics, while difficult to talk about, are very relevant to students’ wellness and experience when they start at Mines. Examples include mental health, addiction or drug use, personal safety concerns, disability needs, and more. Even circumstances students think are resolved can occasionally resurface while they are away at school. We are providing an anonymous support webinar to address these very topics.

This webinar is designed so students and families can ask questions, get resources, and feel supported in a discrete and respectful manner. As this is a webinar format, your camera will already be off. You additionally have the ability to set your name as “anonymous”. More instructions on accessing Zoom anonymously can be found here.

For privacy reasons, you will not pre-register to attend, unlike our other webinars. Instead, you can simply click the button below at the time of the webinar. 

If you cannot make it but have questions about the topics above or similar topics, please get in touch with the Dean of Students Office at deanofstudents@mines.edu. Your questions will be handled with an appropriate level of discretion.
