The mental health of today’s college students continues to be a top-level concern for institutions of higher education, whether it is viewed from the perspective of staffing mental health services on campus, responding to after-hours crises in residence halls, providing accessible treatment with limited budgets, managing behavioral threats, or maintaining student safety during personal crises.
With the backing of more than 280 counseling centers, multiple national organizations, and the addition a full-time project manager in 2014, the Center for College Mental Health CCMH is striving to infuse the national dialogue about college student mental health with high quality data that is capable of informing policy.
This year’s report summarizes data contributed to CCMH during the 2013-2014 academic year, closing on June 30, 2014. De-identified data were contributed by 140 college and university counseling centers, describing 101,027 unique college students seeking mental health treatment, 2,900 clinicians, and over 770,000 appointments. Below are the most frequently reported "presenting concerns" or problem areas for college students during the 2013-2014 school year.
