Training COVID-19 Contact Tracers to Address College Student Mental Health and Substance Misuse Related Risks
Licensed psychologists, certified as contact tracers, will discuss how gatekeeper training
principles and practices may be integrated into contact tracer curricula to provide
guidance regarding risk identification and timely referral. We will discuss the impact of isolation on mental health, substance misuse, and recovery-related outcomes and make recommendations about ways to best support students who are both isolating and quarantining. Potential collaborations between campus and contact tracing entities will be explored.
