The pandemic has put a national spotlight on how mental health and well-being can impact student success. To help colleges glean insights, the Center for Community College Student Engagement (CCCSE) developed a special-focus module on this topic for the CCSSE 2023 administration. Learn what students said about if they believe their college makes this issue a priority, if they know where to seek help at the college, if there are barriers that prevent them from seeking help, and much more. Also, learn what Delta College (MI) does to support the mental health and well-being of their students through internal services and innovative community partnerships.
Learners will have the option to earn a certificate of attendance by completing the webinar evaluation.
