Getting Higher Ed Mental Health Services Online

As we build out our online learning capacity, should we be building out our online mental healthcare offerings as well?

Reported by Education Dive, our students have undergone significant trauma in these past few months. Prior to the pandemic, our mental health departments were likely overwhelmed and underfunded. How much worse today? And what can we do to better serve these students?

Does integration with broader online therapy networks make the most sense to cost-effectively scale?

The takeaway? The country is going through a tough time. Our students are going through a tough time. While we’re trying to get our fall plans sorted out, we need to make sure we’re helping our students get through these months in between as well.

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