In Pursuit of Happiness Caring for the Whole Student in Higher Ed

An ACHA survey in 2017 of over 60,000 students revealed that nearly 40% of college students said they had felt so depressed in the prior year that it was difficult for them to function, and 61% of students said they had “felt overwhelming anxiety” in the same time period. Nearly 73% of college students living with a mental health condition experienced a mental health crisis on campus. Join a distinguished panel to hear how leading institutions are working to prevent students from burning out and dropping out, colleges across the country — where health centers might once have left meaningful care to outside providers — are experimenting with new measures.
