Promoting Mental Health Discourse
President Burwell moves forward the national conversation about mental health of college students with an essay in the November/December 2018 Foreign Affairs. In “Generation Stress: The Mental Health Crisis in Schools,” Burwell covers the rising trend of student mental health challenges and how universities can play a positive role in making change. The piece is the result of Burwell’s extensive conversations with students and a thorough analysis of the higher education landscape by Campus Life’s Traci Callandrillo and Psychology Professor Kate Gunthert. Thrive Global, the health and wellness platform founded by Ariana Huffington, syndicated it in August 2019.
