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.

  • What it really means to be a Military Supportive Campus …

    The term “Military Friendly” is probably one of the most overused phrases in higher education today. The only problem with calling ourselves Military Friendly is that the term itself is somewhat misleading. Being “friendly” could mean something completely different at each institution you visit. I prefer to use military supportive since we are in the business of providing not only an education to this new group of returning service men and woman but also provide support to ensure they are better prepared to transition from the military community to our campus community.
