Ohio State University professors who want to make sure that students know how to get help for mental-health problems now have an easy way to do that. On Thursday, the University Senate approved a resolution encouraging all instructors to include a statement about mental-health services on their course syllabus. It’s up to each instructor or the department or college whether to incorporate the statement, which would describe the risks of poor mental health and give addresses and phone numbers for help. The university doesn’t require any specific content on a syllabus, said Wayne Carlson, dean of undergraduate education.
