Community-based Resources for Preventing, Intervening in, and Recovering from Incidents Involving Students Experiencing Mental Health Concerns

Publication Date: 2016
Abstract: Ongoing communication between public safety and other officials is paramount to help address the challenges and increasing need for supportive and effective mental health services for college and university students with differing mental health needs. Partnerships with off-campus providers can augment campus-based services that may help provide a larger mental health network that will benefit both institutions of higher education and students. This compilation of available case studies, guidelines, organizations, programs, strategies, and training may assist campus safety officials in preventing, intervening in, and recovering from incidents involving students experiencing mental health concerns.
