Mental Health 101: The Class No One Wants to Talk About

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The need for mental and behavioral health services on college and university campuses is increasing for both new students who arrive with documented psychiatric disabilities and other students who are coping with traumatic life issues, stress, anxiety, depression, and emerging mental and behavioral health illnesses. The American College Health Association (ACHA) organized a national research survey (National College Health Assessment, NCHA) which provides the largest known comprehensive data set on the health of college students.

According to the ACHA-NCHA, 15% of college students reported that they have been diagnosed or treated for depression, and 37% reported depression severe enough to impact function. The Jed Foundation is at the forefront of combatting depression and suicide on college campuses, and is an important component of generating awareness of and providing resources for depression in college students. They are a valuable partner for providing education to healthcare providers and educators about making mental health part of routine conversations as well as screening for and treating depression which can improve the quality of life and, for some, save lives.

In this short CME Outfitters Snack, expert faculty discuss depression among college students and the impact psychiatric disorders have on them personally, as well as their academic progress. The faculty presents resources, campus programs, pharmacological, and nonpharmacological strategies for addressing the problem of depression amongst college students.
