The decline in mental health of college students has been a growing concern, and one that has compounded since the pandemic. Research confirms that the mental health of students has become a substantial risk to institutional enrollment and has compounding impacts for how institutions best respond.
According to data from the American College Health Association, it is likely that tens of thousands of students withdraw each year due to mental health conditions such as stress, anxiety, and depression. More than 113,000 students took a leave of absence in 2021, which included medical leaves for mental health reasons, according to the National Student Clearinghouse.
Students who stop-out may face substantial financial losses and also owe schools money. These financial burdens dampen a student’s ability to return and eventually graduate.
This webcast will share trends and best practices in reducing the financial, institutional, and emotional risks of declining student mental health.
