Supporting the mental health needs of college students
Suicide is the leading cause of death in college students, but are universities doing enough to provide mental health resources?
This hour on Where We Live, we talk about a growing need for more mental health support on the college campus.
We hear from Jennifer Rothman of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and talk about what colleges can do to better aid students, and where students can go for help.
