Event description
Which direction is campus mental health heading? Our panel will discuss the benefits, innovations, and realities of campus-based care.

About this Event

Universities across the United States find themselves at a crossroads with how mental health services are provided to students. During the pandemic, virtual care has worked as the dominant model for many schools, but how will higher education institutions prepare and invest moving forward?

In this webinar, we'll discuss the latest CCMH data pertaining to telehealth campus services, creative ways to form hybrid models of care, the long-term viability of telehealth compared with traditional referral models, and how counseling centers can structure their holistic mental health offerings for the upcoming academic year.

Join us on Tuesday, April 20th at 3pm ET for a 60-minute panel discussion.
