ALPHA SIGMA TAU NATIONAL FOUNDATION FUNDED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS OFFERED BY THE ALPHA SIGMA TAU SORORITY IN THE FOLLOWING AREAS:MINDWISESEVENTY-FIVE PERCENT OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CONDITIONS ARE DIAGNOSED BY THE AGE OF 24. INITIAL SYMPTOMS OFTEN APPEAR DURING THE COLLEGE YEARS, WHEN EXPLORATORY BEHAVIORS WITH SUBSTANCES AND ALCOHOL ALSO BEGIN. THE COLLEGE YEARS ARE AN EXCITING TIME OF PERSONAL GROWTH, BUT THEY CAN ALSO BRING ACADEMIC, SOCIAL, AND FINANCIAL PRESSURES, WHICH CAN WORSEN UNDERLYING MENTAL HEALTH AND SUBSTANCE USE ISSUES. BY TAKING A BRIEF MINDWISE SCREENING, STUDENTS CAN LEARN IF THEY HAVE A BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ISSUE AND LEARN SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS.BEHAVIORAL HEALTH WHICH INCLUDES MENTAL HEALTH, SUBSTANCE USE, AND MORE IS A KEY PART OF YOUR OVERALL WELL-BEING. BRIEF SCREENINGS ARE THE QUICKEST WAY TO DETERMINE IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU CARE ABOUT SHOULD CONNECT WITH A BEHAVIORAL HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. THINK OF THESE AS A CHECKUP FROM YOUR NECK UP. THIS PROGRAM IS COMPLETELY ANONYMOUS AND CONFIDENTIAL, AND IMMEDIATELY FOLLOWING THE BRIEF QUESTIONNAIRE YOU WILL SEE YOUR RESULTS, RECOMMENDATIONS, AND KEY RESOURCES.NEW AND COLLEGIATE MEMBERS CAN TAKE THE SCREENING ON THEIR PHONE, A LAPTOP, OR TABLET ANONYMOUSLY AND FROM THE PRIVACY OF THEIR OWN RESIDENCE HALL ROOM. BECAUSE OF THIS, MINDWISE SCREENINGS REACH STUDENTS WHO MIGHT BE HESITANT TO CONTACT A COLLEGE COUNSELOR OR THERAPIST DIRECTLY.MONEYSMARTSMONEYSMARTS IS AN ENGAGING ONLINE PROGRAM THAT OFFERS COLLEGE STUDENTS THE KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE INFORMED FINANCIAL DECISIONS DURING AND AFTER COLLEGE. THE PROGRAM HELPS USERS ESTABLISH GOOD MONEY HABITS AND GIVES THEM THE "MONEY SMARTS" THEY NEED TO THRIVE THROUGHOUT LIFE. THE PROGRAM ADDITIONAL STRIVES TO REDUCE STUDENT DEBT AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE. THE PROGRAM ATTACKS THE PROBLEM OF FINANCIAL LITERACY FROM ALL SIDES. A MIX OF PODCASTS, VIDEOS, BLOG POSTS, AND ARTICLES TACKLE JUST ABOUT ANY FINANCIAL TOPIC YOU CAN THINK OF. WHETHER USERS NEED A PRIMER ON STUDENT BORROWING, A REFRESHER ON WHAT A CREDIT SCORE IS, OR ADVICE ABOUT MANAGING A COLLEGE-STUDENT SIZED BUDGET, THE MONEYSMARTS LIBRARY WILL HELP.OFFICER ACADEMY 2021: EQUIP OFFICER SKILLS TRAININGEQUIP GIVES NEWLY INSTALLED SORORITY LEADERS THE SKILLS TO MANAGE THE INTERPERSONAL AND OPERATIONAL CHALLENGES THEY FACE IN THEIR NEW POSITION. RISE PARTNERSHIPS GUIDE THE CONVENED MEMBERS OF ALPHA SIGMA TAU OFFICER ACADEMY THROUGH EQUIP: OFFICER SKILLS TRAINING, A DEVELOPMENTAL PROCESS FOCUSED ON IMPROVING CORE LEADERSHIP SKILLS INCLUDING GOAL SETTING, NAVIGATING RELATIONSHIPS, AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT. THIS PROCESS CONSISTS OF 10 PRE-RECORDED VIDEO LESSONS, 8 LIVE VIRTUAL PRACTICE/Q&A SESSIONS, AND SUPPLEMENTAL RESOURCES FOR CHAPTER LEADERS TO UTILIZE THROUGHOUT THEIR TERM.REGISTERED EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE OFFICERS WILL RECEIVE A SELF-PACED, ONLINE PREPARATION COURSE IN ADVANCE OF THE VIRTUAL PROGRAM KICK OFF. RECORDED AND LIVE CONTENT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS ON A SET SCHEDULE OVER THE LIVE-LEARNING PORTION OF THE PROGRAM. THE PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO ENHANCE PARTICIPANTS' LEADERSHIP SKILLS AS ORGANIZATIONAL OFFICERS. THE BULK OF THE PROGRAM'S IS FACILITATED BY RISE PARTNERSHIPS AS THEY DELIVER THEIR EQUIP PROGRAM MODIFIED FOR VIRTUAL ENGAGEMENT.NOT ANYMORESEXUAL ASSAULT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST ISSUES FACING COLLEGE CAMPUSES. WHILE UNIVERSITIES STRUGGLE TO FIND PROGRAMS THAT ARE COMPLIANT WITH THE CAMPUS SEXUAL VIOLENCE ELIMINATION (SAVE) ACT, PRIVATE MEMBER ORGANIZATIONS LIKE ALPHA SIGMA TAU AND OTHER NPC ORGANIZATIONS HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE CRUCIAL EDUCATION AND RESOURCES TO COLLEGIATE WOMEN. RESEARCH SUGGESTS THAT A COLLEGIATE WOMAN WHO HAS BEEN SEXUALLY ASSAULTED WILL TALK TO A PEER/FRIEND FIRST, THEN A PARENT, THEN A TRUSTED CAMPUS ADMINISTRATOR/ADVISOR/FACULTY MEMBER. OUR COLLEGIATE MEMBERS ARE A FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE IN COMBATTING SEXUAL VIOLENCE ON CAMPUS AND PROVIDING SUPPORT TO SURVIVORS. NOT ANYMORE PRESENTS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE PROVIDING OUR MEMBERS WITH GREATER KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS REGARDING SEXUAL VIOLENCE AND HOW TO SUPPORT THEIR SISTERS AND FRIENDS. FAR TOO OFTEN, THERE IS A STIGMA ATTACHED TO THE CAMPUS COUNSELING CENTERS, DETERRING SOME WOMEN FROM SEEKING OUT THEIR SERVICES WHEN THEY ARE STRUGGLING. MUCH OF THE SEXUAL ASSAULT EDUCATION THAT IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE TO COLLEGE WOMEN PROVIDES AN ADVOCACY OR LECTURE APPROACH THAT CAN OFTEN RESULT IN TEACHING WOMEN HOW TO AVOID BECOMING A TARGET OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE. IN SOME WAYS, THIS APPROACH CAN BLAME WOMEN FOR THEIR OWN ASSAULT. NOT ANYMORE IS A PROGRAM WHICH INTENTIONALLY MOVES AWAY FROM THIS APPROACH AND PROVIDES PARTICIPANTS WITH RELEVANT RESOURCES ON SEXUAL ASSAULT AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS.NOT ANYMORE IS AN ENGAGING ONLINE PROGRAM DESIGNED TO EDUCATE MEMBERS ON SEXUAL ASSAULT AND RELATIONSHIP VIOLENCE. IT USES HONEST AND COMPELLING VIDEO TUTORIALS TO EDUCATE MEMBERS AND VOLUNTEERS ABOUT CONSENT, SEXUAL ASSAULT, BYSTANDER INTERVENTION, AND HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS. GREEKLIFEEDUGREEKLIFEEDU IS AN ENGAGING ONLINE PROGRAM THAT OFFERS NEW PARTICIPANTS OBJECTIVE, SCIENCE-BASED LESSONS ADDRESSING THE CRITICAL ISSUES OF ALCOHOL AWARENESS, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND HAZING.LEVERAGING THE LATEST RESEARCH AND TRENDS, AND INCORPORATING MULTIPLE EVIDENCE-BASED LEARNING THEORIES, GREEKLIFEEDU PROVIDES SIMPLE STRATEGIES TO HELP STUDENTS ACHIEVE BEHAVIOR-CHANGE OBJECTIVES, TEACH STUDENTS TO PRACTICE SAFE DECISION-MAKING, AND EMPOWER STUDENTS TO MAKE WELL-INFORMED DECISIONS.GREEKLIFEEDU IS DESIGNED TO CHALLENGE STUDENTS' BELIEFS ABOUT ALCOHOL, HAZING, AND SEXUAL ASSAULT WHILE ENABLING THEM TO MAKE POSITIVE AND HEALTHY CHOICES.MENTAL WELL-BEING FOR STUDENTSMENTAL WELL-BEING FOR STUDENTS EQUIPS UNDERGRADUATES WITH ESSENTIAL SKILLS AND INFORMATION TO NAVIGATE THE STRESSORS AND EMOTIONAL CHALLENGES ASSOCIATED WITH COLLEGE LIFE. THIS MENTAL HEALTH COURSE HELPS LEARNERS PRACTICE SELF-CARE STRATEGIES, RECOGNIZE WHEN THEY OR THEIR PEERS ARE IN DISTRESS, AND TAKE ACTION TO FIND ADDITIONAL SUPPORT.THE 45-MINUTE COURSE FEATURES A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT MODALITIES TO APPEAL TO AS MANY LEARNING STYLES AS POSSIBLE, INCLUDING SPOKEN TEXT, INTERACTIVE COPING STRATEGIES , VIDEO INTERVIEWS WITH REAL COLLEGE COUNSELORS WHO EXPLAIN WHY THEY MEET WITH STUDENTS, WHAT CHALLENGES STUDENTS OFTEN FACE, HOW TO SUPPORT FRIENDS IN NEED, AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF WHILE BEING THERE FOR SOMEONE ELSE. THE COURSE ALSO HIGHLIGHTS STORIES FROM CURRENT COLLEGE STUDENTS WHO ARE EXPERIENCING THEIR OWN MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES ON CAMPUS. FOR ONE IT IS SEEING A COUNSELOR, FOR ANOTHER, IT IS CONNECTING TO A GROUP ON CAMPUS, AND FOR ANOTHER, IT IS SIMPLY HAVING A FRIEND WHO OFFERED SUPPORT.MENTAL WELL-BEING FOR STUDENTS WAS DEVELOPED BASED ON RESEARCH AND KEY THEMES THAT EMERGED FROM INTERVIEWS WITH CAMPUS PROFESSIONALS AND STUDENTS, AS WELL AS FROM THE EXPERTISE OF SUBJECT MATTER EXPERTS IN THE FIELD. FOR STUDENTS STRUGGLING WITH MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES, THE COURSE VALIDATES THEIR EXPERIENCES IN A SUPPORTIVE, NON-STIGMATIZING WAY, WHILE HELPING THEM GAIN ENHANCED STRATEGIES FOR MANAGING THEIR WELL-BEING AND GETTING CONNECTED TO RESOURCES.FOR STUDENTS WHO DO NOT CURRENTLY STRUGGLE WITH MENTAL HEALTH CHALLENGES, THEY WILL WALK AWAY FROM THE COURSE WITH A DEEPER UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO MAINTAIN THEIR EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING, STRATEGIES TO UTILIZE SHOULD THEY BE CONFRONTED WITH EMOTIONAL DISTRESS, AND INDICATORS TO DETERMINE WHEN SEEKING OUT SUPPORT FROM A PROFESSIONAL MAY BE HELPFUL SHOULD THEY EXPERIENCE EMOTIONAL CHALLENGES IN THE FUTURE. FOR ALL STUDENTS, THE COURSE PROVIDES SKILL-BASED EDUCATION ON HOW TO SUPPORT ONE ANOTHER FROM A MENTAL HEALTH STANDPOINT, IN A WAY THAT IS APPROPRIATE, WITHIN THE REALM OF THEIR TRAINING AND BANDWIDTH AS STUDENTS, AND IN A WAY THAT ALLOWS THE "HELPER" TO MAINTAIN THEIR OWN EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING.PRESCRIPTION DRUG MISUSE PREVENTIONPRESCRIPTION DRUG ABUSE IS A GROWING ISSUE, AND OPIOID ABUSE IS NOW THE LEADING CAUSE OF ACCIDENTAL DEATHS IN THE U.S. NOW, MORE THAN EVER, STUDENTS ARE COMING TO CAMPUS ALREADY TAKING MEDICATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN PRESCRIBED FOR CONDITIONS SUCH AS ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, ADHD, OR FOR PAIN. IT'S CRITICAL TO EQUIP STUDENTS WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS TO PREVENT MISUSE AND ABUSE.PRESCRIPTION DRUG SAFETY IS AN INNOVATIVE DIGITAL COURSE THAT ARMS STUDENTS WITH THE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS TO MAKE HEALTHY, INFORMED DECISIONS WHEN IT COMES TO PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS USING AN EVIDENCE-BASED, POPULATION-LEVEL APPROACH TO PREVENTION.
