Committed to Providing High-Quality Mental Health Services @ CSU
THE MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS ON CAMPUSES
College students are struggling with increased rates of anxiety, depression, and thoughts of suicide that affect their ability to study. A recent study showed that 79% of college students endorsed a moderate or high level of stress in the last 30 days. And, 40% of students surveyed endorsed having thought about suicide in the last year.
We are making a difference at CSU! At the Counseling Center, we provide support and empowerment for our diverse students to overcome barriers, we help students through crises, and we connect them to resources. Our most recent data show that our students experience more suicidal thoughts than students at other university counseling centers. Our staff and our campus-wide Suicide Prevention Task Force are working to help prevent suicide and improve our students’ overall well-being.
You can be part of the solution! Help us provide mental health resources to CSU students. These funds might be used toward initiatives such as:
- Fees to cover psychiatry appointments for students with demonstrated financial need
- Materials, Advertising, and Incentives for outreach events (such as Anxiety and Depression Screening Day or Mental Health Awareness Week)
- Technology needed to offer hybrid therapy groups
- Marketing materials related to suicide prevention initiatives on campus
- Candy or other items for creating a welcoming waiting room area
