Join UW-Green Bay Libraries for a discussion about college student mental health
Join Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, Kris Vespia, for a discussion about college student mental health, the potential impact on academics and work, and the implications for staff and faculty. This free virtual event is being held March 29, from 12:00-1:00 pm.
Conversations about college student mental health are often centered around the impact of the pandemic and the “crisis” it created. Although there is no doubt that COVID-19 and all that came along with it exacerbated issues, college student mental health concerns had reached critical levels prior to that. Rates of mental illness and suicidal ideation increased dramatically in the last decade. Demand for services also increased, but it remains true that the majority of people with a diagnosable condition do not seek treatment, likely at least in part due to stigma.
