One in five teens and young adults live with a mental health condition, and three quarters develop one by age 24, according to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
In order to create campus communities that foster college students’ mental health & well-being, colleges and universities must provide students with:
- Tools to support social-emotional learning
- Skills that bolster their ability to thrive
- Strategies for supporting others
Mental Well-being for Students equips undergraduates with essential skills and information to navigate the stressors and emotional challenges associated with college life. This mental health course helps learners practice self-care strategies, recognize when they or their peers are in distress, and take action to find additional support.
In Partnership with The JED Foundation
As part of our shared mission to promote student safety, emotional health and wellness EVERFI and The Jed Foundation have partnered to co-develop
Mental Well-being for Students.
The EVERFI Difference
