Support for Students
Whether you’re 18 or 80, getting a college education is a unique and rewarding experience. It’s an inimitable time where journeys begin, doors open, and lifelong memories are made. However, every student knows that oftentimes there is more than one price tag that comes with the experience of higher education.
Balancing college with emotional, physical, and mental health can feel like walking barefoot on a tightrope between skyscrapers while juggling. It’s no wonder that the American Psychological Association is becoming increasingly concerned about mental health on campuses. In a survey from 2012, the APA found that 41.6% of college students suffer from anxiety, while 36.4% battle with depression. Relationship problems accounted for 35.8% of students’ stressors on campus.
If not addressed properly, these issues can have a devastating effect on not only education but every aspect of a student’s life, including their preparedness for life after college.
Unfortunately, campuses can be ill-equipped to empower students who struggle with their mental health. The APA also found that “19% of directors report the availability of psychiatric services on their campus is inadequate.”
Triad’s Student Support can offer campuses a comprehensive, flexible, and affordable way to support every type of student. Let Triad’s Student Support Program help empower your students to overcome mental hurdles and become the creators, innovators, and leaders of tomorrow.
