  • 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. This erosion comes at a time when students are bombarded on all dimensions of health and wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, social, spiritual, occupational, and financial.

  • 2018 Spring Conferences for BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA

    Each spring, volunteer teams from around the country work to coordinate regional spring conferences. Since regional spring conferences are geographically based, they provide a more personalized and relaxed conference setting. Regional conferences also allow peer education groups to expand on presentations from General Assembly as well as network for future collaborations. Applications to host a spring conference in 2019 are now available. We welcome you to attend any of the regional spring conferences if the location or dates are a better fit.
