The STAND Program

(A part of the Innovative Treatment Network)

The Screening and Treatment for Anxiety and Depression (STAND) Program allows students to assess whether they are experiencing symptoms and offers immediate treatment options best fit for their needs. Since launching in 2017, we have received a number of inquiries. In recognition that other campuses may be interested in adapting our model for their own, we created this page to share our practices and materials. While this initial set up was established for our campus, we envision that it is a model that may be replicated in a variety of settings and easily customized for different population groups.
