Are Campuses Ready to Support Students in Distress?

The Jed Foundation (JED) and Kognito, 2016

Between February 2012 and June 2017, Kognito surveyed 14,584 faculty and staff members and 51,294 undergraduate students in 100+ colleges and universities in the U.S. Participants were asked to complete the brief online survey as the first step in taking Kognito’s evidence-based and interactive mental health simulation entitled “At-Risk." The data suggests strongly that while faculty, staff, and students recognize that it is part of their role to recognize, approach, and connect students in psychological distress to mental health support services, that they still report not feeling like they have adequate skills, knowledge, and self-confidence to follow through on these critical tasks.
