Survey of College Mental Health Services
The 149-page study presents data from 51 North American colleges and universities about their mental health services. The benchmarking study helps its readers to answer questions such as: what are overall budgets for college mental health services and are they rising or falling? How long are therapeutic sessions and what limits do services place on their number and duration? What are manpower requirements and how are they met? What percentage of students seeking help are using psychiatric medications? What percentage are referred to outside services? How effective are triage techniques in dealing with a surge in students seeking help? What are the most commonly perceived mental health problems? How significant a problem are bipolar disorders, drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, and sexual abuse, among other problems and other problems and conditions? The report details the many ways that college mental health services are coping with an influx of students, how they are marketing their services and monitoring students in trouble. The report also looks at collaborations with other colleges, grant and fundraising support, preventative mental health measures and more.
