This is a fascinating issue - in the last two years - since COVID, I've seen a steady increase in students seeking mental health help - directly asking, rather than simply struggling or hiding or waiting for me to approach. I've had great success at one school where I'm an adjunct - that is, students report finding the help they need after a referral. But, I wonder about the general preparedness of colleges for the mental health needs of students - and is the current level of service use sustainable?
