Indiana University has reduced mental health stigma on campus

Indiana University’s attempts to remove some of the stigma behind mental health issues appears to be working.

Reported by Education Dive, the peer-led U Bring Change to Mind (UBC2M) has been holding events, “de-stress” activities, and bi-weekly meetings in attempt to boost mental health awareness and services across campus.

Longitudinal surveys have shown a decrease in prejudice, and an increase in inclusive behavior since these efforts have begun.

The takeaway? With students’ mental health a growing concern from university leaders, how do we utilize centralized and de-centralized efforts to improve the mental health services and support at our institutions?

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