Please join us for a student panel that centers the voices and experiences of Tufts students and mental health as they navigate personal, academic, social, and political challenges. In the past few years, there has been a growing awareness that college students are experiencing high levels of distress, depression, and anxiety and are increasingly seeking mental health support. Faculty are watching this play out in their classrooms in a variety of ways, and are appropriately concerned. Tufts [mental health services – accurate name] has creatively added to their services by increasing peer support through a relatively new program called Mental Health Representatives. In this panel, three students who work in this program will share concerns they observe emerging for their peers, both in and out of the classroom. They will also share their thoughts about what students may and may not need related to social and emotional support from their faculty.
