Student Mental Health & Well-Being Collaborative
Participate in EAB’s Student Mental Mental Health & Well-Being Collaborative to make progress on student well-being initiatives through a series of guided workshops with peers.
In the wake of the pandemic era, the importance of addressing student mental health and well-being remains a heightened focus for campus leaders. Student affairs teams must leverage on the current momentum to facilitate student wellness throughout their campus experience.
We have a long way to go before proactive well-being support is truly integrated throughout the student experience, and not just as an add-on here and there."
