Mental Health Matters

Mental health has become a critical issue on college campuses. Here at BU, behavioral medicine clinicians report that the number of students in crisis coming in for help has more than doubled over the past five years. And the number of students needing medical transports for psychiatric evaluation has also risen, from 68 in the 2010–2011 academic year to 120 last year. In light of this alarming trend, BU Today examines the state of mental health both nationally and at BU in this special four-part series.
