This 18 month initiative is designed to guide and support institutions through a transformative process that makes the mental health of students of color a campus wide priority. Our goal is to better equip schools across the country to prioritize this important work. Through EMHC, colleges and universities join a cohort that meets regularly to share responsibility, build knowledge, make investments, innovate, and learn from each other. Each campus works to address campus racial climate, policies, programs and services to better support the mental health and emotional well-being of students of color. Our approach is grounded in equity-centered research and best practices, and is informed by the Equity in Mental Health Framework developed in collaboration with the JED Foundation (JED) and the Steve Fund’s Crisis Response Task Force report which situates student experience in the time of the pandemic and racial injustice movements.
