Mental Health

The Mental Health Focus Area supports ongoing efforts to address the mental health issues that students face. As the stigma surrounding mental health continues to dwindle, student affairs practitioners will continually be facing and adapting to new challenges. NASPA provides support for those individuals in the form of specialized conference experiences, Knowledge Communities, and extensive research on the subject.

  • NASPA Right Now - January 2017

    The start of a new year often brings an opportunity for renewal, growth, and new beginnings. While there have been significant challenges in this academic year, I am optimistic about the future because of the passion, commitment, and energy I feel from our community. NASPA continues to engage in the integral aspects of student learning, closing the achievement gap, access and equity, and many other issues that have an impact on our students. I look forward to continuing an action-oriented and collaborative student affairs agenda that will provide meaningful support to our students, our colleagues, and our profession.

  • Breaking the 4 Year Myth

    So you didn’t graduate in 4 years. Don’t worry, you’re not alone! Many college students don’t receive their Bachelor's degree in four years. Be it taking classes we don’t have to take, having to retake classes, not getting into the program we wanted to right away, or, if you’re like me, switching your major (I did 4 times )While it might seem like you failed because you couldn’t make it out in 4 years, my victory lap year (that’s what I have chosen to call my 5th year of undergrad) was probably the best year of my college experience!
