We are excited to announce three Regional Gatherings for this academic year. A combination of a Community of Practice Meeting and a Campus Visit, these gatherings will provide an opportunity to learn about HCA, impact future priorities of HCA, and connect for meaningful conversation with a diverse group of stakeholders in campus mental health.
What is the purpose of a Regional Gathering?
- To increase understanding of who HCA is and what we do
- To provide an opportunity for impact on the work of HCA and gauge resonance with the community of practice
- To curate opportunities for a diverse group of stakeholders to have meaningful conversation about student mental health
