About

Increasing numbers of students are seeking mental health services, but the demand is outstripping our nation’s universities’ capabilities to deliver the care they need. The result can often be long-wait times or in some cases, unavailability of services. Continued tragic events on campus only serve to reinforce the need for expanded services.

As a nation, it is crucial that we come together to help raise the awareness of mental health on college campuses and work together to identify and promulgate best practices and techniques that can be used to help meet the rising demand for mental health, while at the same time, build a culture of early intervention and prevention.

Institutions of higher learning face budget limitations, staff shortages, and other challenges in addressing the mental health and wellness of their students. Together, students, health professionals, and campus leadership can build awareness, drive public policy, and build innovative solutions ensure the mental health and wellness of our nation’s college students.

The American College Health Association, in partnership with the American College Health Foundation, is pleased to collaborate with the American College Health FoundationACPA—College Student Educators InternationalAnxiety and Depression Association of AmericaActive Mindsthe Association for University and College Counseling Center Directorsthe Center for Collegiate Mental HealthThe George Washington Universitythe Healthy Minds Network for Research on Adolescent and Young Adult Mental HealthThe Jed FoundationMid-Atlantic College Health AssociationNASPA - Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, and NIRSA: Leaders in Collegiate Recreation on its inaugural symposium.
