Assessing Effectiveness and Looking Ahead

On most campuses, spring is the time to assess the effectiveness of current programs and develop budgets for the upcoming fiscal year.

Our library offers ideas for evaluating your prevention programs and updating drug, alcohol, and other policies.

If you’re hoping to ramp up your campus approach to student mental health, a new guide from the Jed Foundation can help. This national organization is dedicated to reducing emotional distress and preventing suicide among college students.

Developed in partnership with the Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), Campus MHAP: A guide to campus mental health action planning provides a comprehensive framework for planning, engaging stakeholders in the community, and making the best use of existing resources. It also offers specific tactics for suicide prevention and caring for students’ mental health.

The guide can be downloaded as a PDF, and EDC’s series also includes four webinars for college and university campus professionals working in mental health and suicide prevention.
