As students return to campuses nationwide, global speaker and recent college graduate Jacob Griffin has insight on what students face & parents can expect—along how to identify students in distress.
Ø On campus Griffin advocated for an increase in mental health services for students. He formed a chapter of the national campus mental health organization Active Minds, bringing 220+ students together in the orgs. first year and procuring 15k worth of campus programing including a backpack display of students lost to suicide and speaker Kevin Briggs, “Guardian of the Golden Gate,” known for his work as a California state highway patrolman credited for preventing 200+ suicides on the Golden Gate Bridge.
Today, Griffin has founded a national 501c/3 aimed toward increasing mental health services for students on campuses nationwide.
· Counseling centers according to national reports are seeing an annual 30% increase in demand for services by students in need the past several years.
· 18-24 is the most common time for the onset of mental illness. The added stressors of college can increase the odds.
· Students being away from home for the first time sometimes isolate themselves in campus dorms and fall into depression
