The State of Mental Health: The Evolving Landscape and Strategies/Resources for Navigating the Path Forward
April 1, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm CDT
Mental health problems among college students were at alarming levels and on the rise prior to the eruption of COVID-19. The pandemic has added stressors and exacerbated mental health problems. Sara Abelson will review the current state of college student mental health nationally, trends over time, and opportunities for action, drawing on the largest study of college student mental health in the U.S., the Healthy Minds Study. Janet Lewis Muth will then lead a discussion of how that data translates to the residential liberal arts setting and how institutions like ours can respond.
