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.
