What Is Educators' Role in Student Mental Health?

Mental health issues among college students have skyrocketed. Simply put, our students’ wellbeing is in jeopardy. And while most institutions offer counseling and support, those services are severely oversubscribed. Educators have a part to play in supporting students who are struggling, but what is that role? How can educators best help, and are there boundaries? Hear students get real about how mental health has impacted their college experience, and learn what educators can do about it.
