Emotional intelligence: Combatting the college mental health crisis

Wednesday, September 21, 2022

A recent survey conducted by the University of Michigan found that more than 60% of college students “met criteria for one or more mental health problems.” This is a whopping 50% increase in less than a decade. Studies further indicate that marginalized communities have been disproportionately affected—students of color have experienced mental health struggles at a higher rate, and a review published by Yale researchers in 2022 noted that students in lower socioeconomic groups were more susceptible to mental health struggles than their peers.
