Learn what practical steps must be taken to respond to a mental health crisis in your institution.

Recent studies confirm that the number of college students with mental health problems is growing and there is an increase in the severity of the psychological issues that these students face. Mental health problems such as depression and anxiety are leading impediments to retention and interfere with a student’s ability to succeed academically. The signs of serious mental illness often first manifest in late adolescence and early adulthood increasing the likelihood that a student will be on a college campus during his or her first mental health crisis.

Do you know the signs that a student may have a mental health problem? What should you do if you suspect that mental illness is contributing to poor academic performance or a student conduct problem? How should you respond in a mental health emergency?
