About this Episode

A discussion about the results and implications of the just-released Role of Faculty in Student Mental Health survey. The survey explores faculty members’ perspectives on the state of student mental and behavioral health and their role as gatekeepers. Our guests are Sarah K. Lipson, PhD, Principal Investigator of the study and Assistant Professor of Health Law Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health; and Zoe Ragouzeos, PhD, Executive Director of Counseling and Wellness Services at New York University and Mary Christie Foundation President. Drs. Lipson and Ragouzeos walk through the survey findings and explain what steps faculty and college administrators can take to improve student wellbeing. You can find the report here.

Tomorrow (4/8) at 1:00pm, a webinar presentation will dive further into the findings with a panel discussion on the important implications for programs, prevention strategies, and campus policy. Register for the event here.
