It’s no secret that student mental health and suicide prevention have become major issues on college campuses across the country. While some institutions have made meaningful efforts to encourage dialogue, counter stigma, and make mental health services readily accessible, concerns about liability, an inability to adequately serve students and other factors have made higher education inhospitable for some students with mental health needs.
In a new Focus newsletter, CAFE TAC explores a new non-profit project that is working to help colleges and universities identify the shortcomings in their approach to mental health, while also offering a seal of approval to those institutions with exceptional mental health, suicide prevention and substance abuse programming. This organization recently revealed the first thirty schools to receive its seal. To find out who those school are, and how the evaluation process works, check out the new Focus newsletter today!
