College can be a time of pressure and personal growth – but it’s also a period when many students face mental health challenges. On ‘Mental Breakthrough’, host Patricia Wu and guest Dr. Sarah Lipson discuss the widening gap between students who need support and those who receive it.

Mental Health Matters on Campus

Many college students experience anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. A significant gap exists between students needing mental health support and those who actually receive it.

Inequity in Mental Health Care

Students of color, first-generation students, low-income students, and international students are more likely to face barriers in accessing mental health care.Creating equitable mental health support on campus means addressing these disparities head-on.

Solutions for Student Well-Being

Colleges can help by providing trauma-informed mental health resources and hiring counseling staff that reflects the diversity of their student body. Prevention efforts addressing issues like financial stress and student debt can also positively impact student mental health.
