Description

In my project, I studied mental health on the Colby campus. I investigated the perspectives of students (including CAs), faculty, deans and the counseling center by creating a series of questions, unique to each group, that addressed individuals opinions on how mental health is handled at Colby or in general among student populations. I looked into eating disorders, anxiety and depression specifically and wanted to discern how students struggling with these issues were cared for on campus and what kind of programming existed that was centered on increasing awareness of these issues. In doing this research, my overall goal is to make the campus a more inclusive place for all students in both the academic and social realms, especially for those struggling with mental health issues.
