How NAU Streamlined Student Access to Mental Health Resources

EAB’s Katie Herrmann is joined by Carl Dindo, the director of counseling services for Northern Arizona University, to discuss innovative approaches to meeting student mental health needs. Dr. Dindo and his team have focused on connecting students with the right information, counseling, and other mental health resources in places and ways that students find most helpful. Among the strategies they’ve implemented is getting counselors out of their office more often and “embedding” them in places where students congregate naturally. Dindo and Herrmann discuss the success of these efforts and offer advice to other campus leaders about meeting the mental health needs of a diverse student population.
