Premier Roundtable: Mental Health on Campus
January 31, 2024 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EST
The Center for Collegiate Mental Health (CCMH) at Penn State University is an international practice-research network of over 800 colleges and universities whose mission is to bridge the gap between science and practice in college counseling centers. CCMH collects and analyzes de-identified data as part of the routine practice when students seek mental health treatment at colleges and universities. The information is used, in turn, to benefit college counseling centers, administrators, researchers, the public, and most importantly the students receiving services. In the current program, the mission and scope of CAPS and CCMH will be reviewed. The latest national findings will be presented, including updated trends in student mental health and the impact of COVID-19. The widely documented increases in mental health problems and demand for counseling services over the past one or two decades will be discussed. Next, findings that demonstrate how counseling centers and adjunctive support services contribute to student success will be outlined. Finally, new findings pertaining to the relationship between students’ experiences of discrimination and mental health symptoms will be shared, including implications for colleges and universities.
