Mental Health and Wellness at Columbia

February 02, 2017

A meaningful response to student mental health needs requires excellence in many ways – service provision, collaboration among students, faculty and administrators, resources dedicated to awareness and a supportive environment, and continuous research to seek effective ways to intervene and provide support.  

The following was prepared with Columbia Health's Counseling and Psychological Services, Alice! Health Promotion, Mental Health Services and the Center for Student Wellness at CUMC. Specific suggestions from members of Columbia's Mental Health Task Force and leaders of the University Senate’s Student Affairs Committee are reflected.
