Higher Ed Advisor: meeting student mental health needs in today’s environment

Welcome to Higher Ed Advisor, the Baker Tilly podcast series where we speak with higher education industry leaders about practical and proactive guidance to help colleges and universities protect and enhance their value.

The need for mental health services at colleges and universities is on the rise to provide support for both traditional and non-traditional students. This need, while not caused by COVID-19, has been intensified by the pandemic, and as a result, we are already seeing an increase in creative counseling and other services as institutions prepare to return to campus for the fall semester.

In this podcast, we discuss several proactive strategies to offer students mental health services:

  • Implementing a behavioral intervention team on campus
  • Developing health and wellness-related programming as preventative medicine to enhance student engagement
  • Offering services to improve students’ resiliency and health holistically
  • Leveraging technology platforms to capture data that supports students

Bottom line: higher education institutions should be prepared to meet the rising demand for student health and wellness services.
