Counseling and Health Promotion Services is pleased to bring you the Orange Folder Initiative. Under this initiative, faculty and staff have access to an “Orange Folder” to serve as a quick mental health and behavioral reference guide for faculty and staff who may interact with distressed Warhawks. These folders identify common signs of student concern and provide guidance to faculty/staff on how to respond in addition to who to contact in the event of encountering a student in distress. This reference guide was designed to put at your fingertips the information you need to identify, respond, and refer students in crisis to appropriate AUM departments such as Accountability and Advocacy, Campus Police, WASC, Student Health Services, etc. To launch this initiative, we are providing informative training sessions for faculty and staff who work directly with students – either in or out of the classroom. 

The Recognizing and Helping Students in Crisis: How to use the Orange Folder course is led by Greta Chambless, Associate Director of Clinical Services at AUM’s Counseling Center and Leslie Meadows, AUM’s Title IX Coordinator. Attendees will gain critical insight into concerns that our students may encounter. You will learn about tools and approaches that you can use to respond effectively to best support our students who may be facing a crisis or safety concern. Participants will leave the session with an Orange Folder, a valuable resource that will be useful in recognizing and responding to students in crisis. The session will be offered twice to allow for scheduling a time best suited for you. Additionally, we can provide this training on demand at your next staff meeting.
