Under Pressure: Colleges Confront a Mental Health Crisis | WKAR Radio
Sat., Sep. 4 at 4 p.m. on 90.5 FM & STREAMING | What is a college’s responsibility for helping students navigate mental health challenges, and how well are colleges rising to the task?
Even before the pandemic, campus counseling services were reporting a marked uptick in the number of students with anxiety, clinical depression and other serious psychiatric problems. Students and parents are pressing colleges to provide more support and accommodations for students with mental health challenges.
College administrators are feeling pressure to do more to retain students whose mental health issues might otherwise lead them to drop out... and to ensure that students don’t harm themselves or others.
