Gender Minority College Student Mental Health & the Impact of Higher Education Policies

Recorded On: 10/29/2020

Gender Minority College Student Mental Health & the Impact of Higher Education Policies


This session will share findings from a nationally representative study that provides unprecedented data about the mental health of U.S. college students who are gender minority (young people whose gender identity differs from their sex assigned at birth). We’ll share evidence of stark mental health inequities and explore mental health variation across subgroups of gender minority students. Finally, we’ll discuss new research regarding the impact of higher education policies on gender minority mental health.
