This is a mental health discussion where we talk with librarians, researchers and practitioners on addressing the challenges in advancing mental health research and broadening access to support in higher education institutions

Student mental health was particularly hard hit as a result of the global pandemic and in a 2021 survey, nearly 75% of college presidents listed “students’ mental health” as their “most pressing issue.”* Libraries are uniquely positioned in engaging with students and supporting a whole-university approach in delivering mental health support services. As safe places of knowledge and learning, they can play a pivotal role in promoting mental health and wellbeing among students, staff and researchers.
