We present findings from a qualitative study of eight community colleges at the forefront of implementing multilevel approaches to support student mental health. We describe how these community colleges are supporting student mental health, key barriers and facilitators to their success, and actionable recommendations.

    In this presentation, Professor Sarah Ketchen Lipson (she/her) will share lessons learned from nearly 15 years of data collected through the national Healthy Minds Study, the most comprehensive annual survey on mental health in higher education. She will discuss prevalence, help-seeking, stigma, and trends in mental health outcomes over time as well as inequalities amplified in recent years. This will include evidence around the unique needs of community college students as well as the ways in which needs are similar for students across institutional types. Dr. Lipson will share what her team has learned about best practices in prevention and early intervention for mental health on campus, and future directions for both research and practice. The presentation will be one hour in length, including time for questions and discussion. Learning outcomes: (1) To understand the state of mental health among students at a population-level, including trends and overall prevalence levels and variations among community college samples; (2) To understand the inequalities that exist in terms of which students are and are not accessing mental health services and the opportunities to expand the reach of resources to meet all student needs, including with limited resources

  • Rapidly evolving evidence and changing guidance, as well as rampant and politicized misinformation and disinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic pose challenges for health literacy, including mental health literacy. It is unknown how many students are familiar with these concepts nor how many campus personnel, including college health professionals and mental health providers, are familiar with current techniques and strategies for teaching students about digital health literacy.

  • To be successful in any public health effort, campus leaders and college health professionals must demonstrate trustworthiness. With significant portions of GenZ reporting mistrust of higher education, it is critical that higher education professionals understand how to cultivate and protect students’ trust in them. The Trustworthiness series will help participants understand and apply the principles of trustworthiness to their work and educate campus leadership.

  • 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.

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.
