New Study: What’s Broken On Our Campuses

New Study: What’s Broken On Our Campuses:

Are college counseling centers actually taking care of the students they’re intended to serve? A new study has the answers.  Out of 765 college students with mental health issues, more than 60% left school because of these problems, reports a study from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

Here are some interesting findings:

  • 27% listed depression as their health issue
  • 24% had bipolar disorder
  • 11% had anxiety
  • 12% reported health issues including eating disorders, autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
When these students were asked how supportive their schools were of their mental health issues:
  • 35% said not very supportive
  • 25% said somewhat supportive
  • 24% said supportive
  • 11% said very supportive
The connection between withdrawing from school and campus counseling services?
Some students said they were unaware of the services provided by their schools; others knew about the services but didn’t find them particularly helpful.
What should schools be doing to make students aware of mental health services — and help them take advantage of them? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
