NASPA Mental Health Conference: A NASPA Strategies Conference

Workshop Health, Safety, and Well-being Wellness and Health Promotion

The NASPA Mental Health Conference will shine a light on best practices for reducing barriers to seeking mental health support and meeting evolving student needs. Conference sessions will discuss the mental health care of students within a context of power and privilege, as well as focus on campus collaborations and issues at all levels, from individual to national trends.


Presented By

 Health, Safety, and Well-being Initiatives


Mental health is a critical concern impacting college student well-being, learning, and success. Data from the 2019-2020 report from the Healthy Minds Study shows that 37% of college students surveyed report having had a mental health diagnosis, and 30% of college students having accessed mental health therapy or counseling in the last year. 

Despite these numbers, stigma is still high: 47% of students agreed with the statement that "most people would think less of someone who has received mental health treatment”. Institutions of higher education across the country report increased mental health issues on campus, as well as increased severity of concerns, emphasizing the importance of effective, evidence-informed strategies that serve a diverse student population.

The NASPA Strategies Conferences convene efforts regarding collegiate alcohol and drug abuse prevention, mental health, sexual violence prevention and response, and well-being in a comprehensive conference experience.
