Effects of Mental Health on Student Learning
VanderLind, Ren
Learning Assistance Review, v22 n2 p39-58 2017
Learning can be hindered by students' mental health. Given the increased reports of mental health concerns among college students, it is imperative that we understand how best to provide supports to this population to help them learn and succeed. This is particularly significant given the body of research that demonstrates how mental illness may negatively affect student success and degree persistence. In order to best serve this growing population, there are possible supports that can be provided in the classroom embedded into current practices and learning opportunities for all students across the board. This article addresses the connections between learning and mental health, practical takeaways for practitioners, and directions for future research.
