Learning About Online Mental Health Tools

This job aid will kick-start your research into online mental health tools by providing an overview of three different platform types, their benefits, any special considerations, and examples of each platform type.

In recent years there has been a dramatic increase in the number of college students seeking mental health services and institutions are struggling to meet the demand. Research has shown that between 2010 and 2015 counseling center utilization increased by an average of 30-40%, a particularly significant jump given that enrollment only increased by 5% in the same period.

As a result, college campuses are seeking new and innovative ways to help their students while decreasing the strain on their counseling centers. If this resonates with you and the challenges your institution is facing, online mental health tools may provide a meaningful solution for increasing your students ‘access to the support they need.
