Towards a Caring Campus Webinar Series (Session One)

Understanding and Addressing Mental Health on Campus: Opportunities and Challenges in Higher Education

Date: October 21, 2021 (Thursday)
Time: 9:00 – 10:00 am (Hong Kong Time)

In this session, Dr. Lipson will share lessons learned from more than 10 years of data collection through the Healthy Minds Study, the most comprehensive annual survey on campus mental health. She will discuss prevalence, help-seeking, and trends in student mental health outcomes over time, and will also present findings from 2020-2021 to understand the effects of the pandemic, particularly in the context of mental health inequalities. The breadth of data examined will include student-reported survey data as well as data from college and university faculty members across the country on their role supporting students and their own wellbeing. Dr. Lipson will share what her team has learned about best practices in prevention and early intervention for mental health on campus, and future directions for both research and practice as campuses re-open this fall.
