Season 1 – Episode 11: Supporting Student Mental Health: Creating a Community of Care
Student mental health remains a top priority for college and university administrators, faculty, and staff. Since prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, many administrators, faculty, and staff members have been seeking to identify ways to better support students at their institutions. A May 2022 survey by the Gallup and Lumina Foundation found that nearly three-fourths of students in a bachelor’s degree program considered taking a break from their academic studies due to emotional distress. Amy Gatto, director of research and evaluation at Active Minds, discusses the relationship between mental health and education.
