  • Crumbling Foundations and Fraying Nets: Intersections of Public Policy & Mental Health on Campus

    While mental health is arguably one of the most prominent issues student affairs professionals engage with on a day-to-day basis, ranging from student needs to maintain or manage existing mental illness or stress to providing outlets and avenues for promotion of mental wellness, it is almost invisible in state and federal policymaking. In this post by Teri Lyn Hinds, NASPA's Director of Policy Research and Advocacy discusses how state and federal policy conversations can add to the mental distress and strain for many students. Despite this, it is rare to see legislation specifically address the growing mental health demands (or the costs of those demands) facing campuses. Policies implemented or being considered nationally in the past year would reverse the gains made to strengthen our general public health and mental health safety nets afforded by the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid expansion in many states.

    When thinking about how to “do” social justice work, I constantly think about how we must incorporate reflection into our approaches in order to create effective and meaningful change. Living in North Carolina as a queer Black woman and working within LGBTQIA services, I have found that knowing myself and building my network of supportive, family-like professionals has allowed me to deepen and lean into my work. Being authentic in my identities, reflecting on my past experiences, and being thankful for the influential people in my life has helped me successfully navigate my first professional experience while holding multiple marginalized identities.
