Wallenberg Exhibit. "To me there's no other choice": Raoul Wallenberg 1912-2012: University of Michigan.

To honor Raoul Wallenberg (B.S. Arch. '35) on the centenary of his birth, the University of Michigan, in cooperation with the Swedish-Consulate General of Detroit, is hosting an exhibition on the life of this illustrious alumnus. Created by the Swedish Institute for the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the exhibition presents the story of Wallenberg's life including his years in Ann Arbor and the months in Budapest when he helped rescue tens of thousands of Jews during the Holocaust.
Wallenberg's extraordinary moral conviction and valor are an inspiration for the University and its alumni. During the past year this exhibition has traveled to Budapest, New York, Washington DC, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Berlin, Ottawa and Toronto.

Depression on College Campuses Conference: Moving Toward Healthy Self-Care: U-M Depression Center.

  community member   < less

The majority of college students with depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders do not seek treatment. Unfortunately, many students who are struggling with depressive illnesses may instead utilize unhealthy coping mechanisms - including drinking, drug use, and self-injurious behaviors - to help manage their symptoms.
Join us for the 11th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings and model programs to help campuses better identify students who may be "self-medicating" or engaging in other harmful behaviors, and support these students in moving toward healthy self-management and effective treatment.
This conference is targeted to students, parents, and professionals who work with college students in any capacity (including psychologists, physicians, nurses, counselors, university leaders, administrators, faculty, academic advisors, student affairs and housing staff, and other educational specialists).
Rackham Graduate School, 915 East Washington Street. Registration is FREE for all students from any institution. Registration fee for non-students is $130 before February 1st, and $145 after February 1st. [map]
