“Mental health was in the shadows ten years ago. Now, we see entire campus communities embracing the issue.”
—Sara Abelson, PhD Student in Health Behavior and Health Education
Giving and Receiving Care in Community
Even as we slowly normalize conversations about mental health, we may still find it difficult to reach out for help. Researchers who study mental health believe critical changes need to be made at universities and many other institutions to support those who live with mental health conditions. Whether we are healing agents, recipients of care, or both, compassion continues to guide our work as researchers and as members of this educational community and many other communities.
