Student Mental Health Resource Collection

Introduction

Mental health issues among students and staff remain a serious concern for K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Many students report that these issues affect their academic work. And suicide is among the leading causes of death for college students. Studies show that demands on counseling centers and other campus services likely will continue to increase as one of the byproducts of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The following United Educators (UE) resources can help you address mental health concerns in your community.


Anyone in the United States can call or text 988 to connect with the National Suicide and Crisis Prevention Lifeline. 988 offers 24/7 access to trained crisis counselors who can help people experiencing mental health-related distress.

If you need a sounding board for a policy or procedure you’re revising or want to hear how other schools navigate a particular risk management issue, our team can help. Send us your risk advice question today ›
