Tangled up in Blue: Boosting Mental Health Services at Community Colleges
Finkel, Ed
Community College Journal, v86 n5 p39-42 Apr-May 2016
In a recent survey of 4,000 community college students, half reported experiencing a mental health condition. American College Counseling Association's (ACCA) fifth annual survey of personal and mental health counseling at community colleges provides some data from 159 professionals at two-year colleges in 41 states and Puerto Rico. Among the respondents, 82 percent said their campuses provide mental health services and 85 percent have a threat assessment team on campus. The top four presenting problems were depression, anxiety, stress and academic problems. This article presents the challenges and remedies for community colleges when it comes to dealing with mental health within their institutions.
