Mental health needs among college students continue to rise. Many students are experiencing their first major life transition, and approximately 1/3 report feelings of anxiety and/or depression. Despite this need, most college campuses aren't properly staffed to meet the demand and often refer their students to off-campus services.
For low-income students, off-campus services may seem unattainable because of expensive copays and high deductibles, especially with increasing student living costs.
