Description: Mental health issues are a significant barrier to academic success among college students. Untreated mental illness—including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders—in the college population is associated with lower grade-point averages and higher probability of dropping out. However, help is available for students who may be struggling.
KSOC-TV will address the topic of mental and substance use disorders among college students during its latest live, interactive webisode, “Behavioral Health on College Campuses.”
The panel will address a range of issues, including protective factors that promote positive mental health, warning signs that can alert friends and others that someone may be struggling and strategies to intervene, and access to services and supports.
