Mental Health and Wellness for Students of Color: Transitioning to College
Presented in partnership with The Steve Fund and jointly with HuffPost
Amid the bustle on U.S. college campuses, a growing incidence of mental health issues is causing concern. College students of color are reporting depression and anxiety coupled with, among some groups, an increased risk for suicide. Many also report feeling more isolated and more overwhelmed than their white classmates, according to surveys conducted by Harris Poll, yet are less likely to seek counseling services on campus.
