    The need for information about how institutions address students' mental health is high. To this end, the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Student Well-being Institutional Support Survey (SWISS) partnered to create a Topical Module on student mental health and well-being for 2023. This session will describe what we learned from the survey and the implications for institutional practice. Special focus will be on first-generation students, whose unique challenges in navigating collegiate experiences can impact their well-being.

    Mental health and other dimensions of wellness in higher education continue to be a priority among students, staff, faculty and administration. Most are in agreement that the conversation must shift away from individual wellness indicators and towards a more holistic well-being approach that includes effective policies, programs and services. Through informal surveys and online conversations, it’s clear that student health and counseling centers still often perceive themselves as being responsible for student well-being and that a conversation about how to engage and break down silos with other campus entities on well-being work is needed. Campuses utilizing public health and social change models in order to guide campus-wide well-being efforts are proving beneficial. After this session, attendees will be able to better understand what evidence-based methods and models are useful for well-being work, the processes campuses are using to choose a functional model and some of the challenges and successes resulting from their use.

    Mental health in higher education continues to be a priority among students, staff, faculty and administration. Most are in agreement that the conversation must shift away from individual mental health and wellness and towards a more holistic well-being approach that includes effective policies, programs and services. Through informal surveys and online conversations, it’s clear that student health and counseling centers still often perceive themselves as being responsible for student well-being and that a conversation about how to engage and break down silos with other campus entities on well-being work is needed. Collecting campus-level well-being data is one way to help advance that conversation. The American College Health Association has three data collection tools that will be discussed during this session, the new Well-being Assessment, the Healthy Campus Inventory and parts of the National College Health Assessment. After this session, attendees will be able to better understand what data is collected in each instrument and how this data may be used in advancing campus conversations on wellbeing.

  • The Mapping the DNA of Integrated College Health Services Webinar Series will be a series of continuing education opportunities for ACHA members addressing the organization and delivery of integrated services (health, counseling, health promotion) on college and university campuses. Each webinar will focus on a key topic of integration such as integrated program models, culture building across professional disciplines, space design and layout, shared policies and practices, shared electronic records, and integration with campus partners. The webinar series is being sponsored by the newly formed ACHA Integrated College Health Coalition and will also include the development of a repository of evidence-informed models of integration, published articles, implementation guides, policies and practices for integrated systems, and other useful integrated college health resources.
