Pace app gets faculty and staff update

News Story

The Just in Case app, for mental health and emergency information, has a new section for faculty and staff.

Pace’s Just in Case app, which lets smartphone, tablet, and computer users quickly access mental health and emergency information, has added a new section specifically for faculty and staff.

The app, which was launched in January of last year, had already expanded to include both the NYC and Westchester counseling facilities this past fall.  It has also been incorporated into the MyPace app.

The new faculty and staff section provides advice on:

  • Your role
  • When to refer
  • Emergency situations
  • How to refer
  • Common student concerns

Lauren Saler, PsyD, assistant director and senior staff psychologist at the Counseling and Personal Development Center in Pleasantville, urges faculty and staff not only to download the app themselves, but to spread the word among students that help, should they ever need it, is as close as their phone. “Faculty and staff are often the first ones to see students in distress,” she says.

Both the Just in Case app and the MyPace app, which includes it, are available for free downloading at app stores and on the University website: http://www.pace.edu/counseling/about-counseling-center.
