1/3 of students seeking campus counseling are doing so because of the pandemic

1/3 of students seeking campus counseling are doing so because of the pandemic.

Reported by Inside Higher Ed, a new report by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health, which includes survey data from 50,000 students who visited 1 of 143 campus counseling centers during the previous academic team, shows that 33% of these visitors sought support related to COVID-19. And 65% of all these students reported that the pandemic has led to some mental health challenges.

The takeaway? We’re going to be dealing with the impact of the pandemic for long after our campuses are fully vaccinated. Will we have the required level of support to help our students re-integrate to mental health?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
