    This session of the Health and Wellness series will provide instruction on how to recognize signs of distress in those around you and will offer guidance on when and how one can intervene. This session is particularly important as recent national data has shown that graduate students and postdocs demonstrate significantly higher levels of anxiety and depression compared to the general population and often don't seek the help they need in these situations. It is critical for peers and colleagues to identify when someone around them is in distress and appropriately intervene.
