Supporting Colleges' and Universities' Mental Health Efforts During COVID-19

Students report significantly greater mental health issues as the impacts of COVID-19 continue to wear on. Institutional leaders now face the downstream challenges, right alongside physical health and academic continuity. Ongoing school closures and future physical distancing requirements have forced institutions of higher education to rapidly pivot the ways in which they support their students.

In response, we’ve adapted our population-level course, Mental Well-being for Students by EVERFI, to better meet the needs of students right now. In addition, we’re launching a unique opportunity to participate in a cohort of institutions who will deploy the course to their student population, and in exchange, receive additional benefits, including COVID-19 specific survey questions, community outreach tools, and data insights to better understand the needs of your students and inform your back-to-school efforts.

Hear from EVERFI Mental Health Expert Erin McClintock as we discuss:

  • The current state of student mental health
  • COVID-19 specific content enhancements made to EVERFI’s Mental Well-being for Students course
  • How to gain access to our unique cohort opportunity, including the timing, data, and other benefits will be available to our Back-to-Better Project members
