As Pandemic Lifts, Student Mental Health Needs ShiftMarch 26, 2021 |

Have we entered a season of hope for student mental health?
The outlook for student well-being may finally be improving with COVID-19 cases going down, vaccinations going up, and more schools announcing plans to return to primarily in-person instruction this fall.
As executive director of Mental Health at TimelyMD, a telehealth provider focused solely on the unique needs of college students, I believe we are in the early stages of rounding the corner and our journey to support students must continue full throttle. For administrators, faculty and staff who feel it is more nuanced than ever to fully grasp what students are going through and where they feel they are headed, you are in good company – among your peers and your students.
