New findings from University presidents indicate mental health problems of their students is a priority - COPE can help!
“When asked for the top mental health concerns they hear about, three-quarters of presidents said anxiety (75 percent) and depression (74 percent). While these were the top two mental health concerns across all sectors, presidents at private nonprofit four-year institutions were the most likely hear about students facing anxiety (84 percent) and depression (83 percent).”
"The gold standard treatment for depression, along with a variety of other mental health disorders, is cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT. Since its introduction, more than 1,000 research studies have found that CBT leads to symptom reduction and significant improvement in functioning." U.S. News and World Report
