“What We Know About the Mental Health of Students of Color during College”

A Review and Call to Action
Vanessa V. Volpe, M.A.
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

ABSTRACT

With the combined increased mental health needs of today’s college students and more students of color attending college than ever before, the mental health thriving of college students of color remains a key issue for researchers and practitioners. While college may be a stressful time for many individuals regardless of their racial/ethnic background, students of color often face additional unique risks to their mental health thriving during college. Therefore, the aim of the present paper is twofold: 1) to survey what is known both about the mental health challenges and strengths of college students of color, and 2) to provide new directions and recommendations for treatment professionals, college personnel, and institutions in supporting the mental health thriving of college students of color.

This work was supported by the Steve Fund to foster research on the mental health and emotional well-being of young people of color.

“What Parents of College Students of Color Need to Know”

By Dr. Annelle B. Primm, M.D., M.P.H.
Medical Expert, The Steve Fund

Often when young people of color move on to college, there are significant changes not only in their lives, but in the lives of their parents as well. While they navigate new territories, parents and other family members must navigate new ways to assist them in their journey. Having knowledge and strategies to be informed and to assist this exciting but sometimes challenging phase in young people’s lives can make a fundamental difference in this experience.

Meeting report: Young, Gifted & @ Risk Conference at the University of Pennsylvania, November 2017

ABSTRACT

This annual conference is a signature event of the Steve Fund which addresses its goal of building awareness, knowledge, and action to promote the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young people of color. It was attended by college and non-profit leaders, students, faculty, administrators, and family and community members. The focus of the 2017 convening was how cultural identity and belonging play into mental health and emotional well-being for students of color. The event was held in Houston Hall, America’s first student union center.

The meeting consisted of two plenary panels as well as breakout group discussions. The conference included the first public presentation of the Equity in Mental Health Framework (developed in partnership between the Steve Fund and the JED Foundation), a set of 10 actionable recommendations to help colleges and universities support and enhance the mental health of students of color.

This document is a summary of the highlights from the Young, Gifted & @ Risk symposium at the University of Pennsylvania. We hope that the knowledge shared at this conference is a useful source of support and guidance for all.

Meeting report: Young, Gifted & @ Risk Symposium The Steve Fund at Washington University in St. Louis, November 2016, by Dr. Alfiee M. Breland-Noble

By Alfiee M. Breland-Noble, Ph.D., MHSc. Senior Advisor, The Steve Fund

ABSTRACT

Young, Gifted & @ Risk 2016 at Washington University was led by Dr. Sean Joe, ​Associate Dean for Faculty and Research ​​and Benjamin E. Youngdahl Professor of Social Development​ at Washington University and Dr. Annelle Primm, Senior Medical Advisor to the Steve Fund. This is the third in a series of annual conferences developed by The Steve Fund and launched at Brown University in 2014 by the Steve Fund and Professor Tricia Rose, Chancellor’s Professor of Africana Studies and Director of the Center for Study of Race and Ethnicity in America at Brown University. Professor Rose created the fitting name of the conference series, “Young, Gifted, &@Risk.” The focus of the 2016 convening was to illuminate the mental health and emotional well-being challenges of college students of color and to increase awareness of mental health, mental illness and emotional well-being in this population. This focus is closely aligned with two of the Steve Fund’s core pillars, “Building Knowledge and Thought Leadership” and “Promoting Awareness and Dialogue.” Washington University’s George Warren Brown School of Social Work, BJC HealthCare, the Center for Social Development, Missouri Foundation for Health, the Race and Opportunity Lab, and the Washington University School of Medicine supported the meeting. Notably, the Brown School of Social Work is a leader in the study of mental illness and social justice for diverse populations. Specifically, it is recognized for substantial contributions to racial diversity in health, education, community and student achievement. Meeting attendees traveled from local, regional and national destinations to attend this meeting and they received a plethora of information regarding current research in college student mental health and culturally-relevant strategies for supporting student success.

Meeting report: Young, Gifted & @ Risk Symposium The Steve Fund at Stanford University November 2015, by Dr. Alfiee M. Breland-Noble

By Alfiee M. Breland-Noble, Ph.D., MHSc. Senior Advisor, The Steve Fund

ABSTRACT

On November 20, 2015, the Steve Fund, a non-profit organization founded to raise awareness and efforts to address the mental health and well-being of young people of color, organized a full day symposium at Stanford University, “Young Gifted & @ Risk”.

The Stanford symposium is the second in a series created to honor the legacy of Stephen C. Rose, a beloved son of the Bell Rose family, whose life ended prematurely due to mental illness in January of 2014. The sym- posium was the second in a series focused on illuminating the challenges of young people of color on college campuses and on increasing awareness of mental and emotional well-being in African-American and diverse young people. A unique aspect of the Steve Fund’s work reflects a particular interest in diverse students at competitive academic institutions in the U.S. The meeting focus was aligned with two of the Fund’s core pillars namely, “Building Knowledge and Thought Leadership” and “Promoting Awareness and Dialogue” in mental health. Stanford University’s School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Center for the Comparative Stud- ies of Race and Ethnicity, and Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) co-sponsored the meeting. Collectively, they are noted for substantial contributions to racial diversity in education, health and well-being.

The presentations in the videos below were made as part of a panel at the 2015 Young, Gifted, & @Risk Conference, organized by the Steve Fund and Stanford University.

The university environment, quality of the university experience, and the “feel” of the campus community can have sizable effects on the mental well-being of young people of color. Speakers in this panel addressed  the forces at play within the university environment, the scope and scale of the challenges they present, and their impact on the adjustment and overall success of aspiring young people of color during their college years and early adulthood. The experts compare the distinctive mental health challenges of the college years and environment to those of other life stages and settings. Experiences of marginality and belonging and how they contribute to overall well-being of students of color were also examined.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner class=”toprow”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

The presentations  were made as part of a panel at the 2015 Young, Gifted, & @Risk Conference, organized by the Steve Fund and Stanford University.

The focus was cutting-edge research in affective science and social psychology that demonstrates the ways in which our cultures, subjective mindsets, and identities shape young people’s emotions, feeling states, and experiences of mental health and well- being. Cultural differences in how we ideally want to feel, as well as what we want to avoid feeling, can powerfully shape young people’s emotional experiences and responses as well as psychological health. Likewise, changes in our subjective mindsets, or the lenses through which we perceive and interpret our experiences, can shape how young people experience and respond to emotional states—for example, viewing stress as something that either enhances or debilitates your performance, i.e., your “stress mindset,” can influence one’s behavioral responses to and physiological experiences of stress. Implications for supporting the psychological and emotional health of young adults and young adults of color in elite college environments are discussed.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner class=”toprow”][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

Marginality, Belonging, and Success: Interpersonal Relationships, Mental Health and the University Experience of High-Aspiring Students and Emerging Adults of Color

The quality of the university experience, environment, and community can have sizable effects on the mental well-being of young people of color.  Research indicates that the quality of students’ interpersonal experiences in the university setting is impacted by institutional commitment to fostering a welcoming environment, student interactions with peers, professors and administrators and the positive sense of belonging arising from these factors. This panel discussion addresses the forces at play in the university environment, the scope and scale of the challenges they present, and their impact on the mental well-being and overall success of high-aspiring young people of color during their college years and early adulthood. Experts compare the distinctive mental health challenges of the college years and environment to those in other settings.  The panel also explores the strengths and weaknesses of existing approaches and practices aimed at helping young people overcome mental health challenges in university settings and beyond. The experts address the unique obstacles to mental health literacy and help-seeking among young people of color, as well as the need for broader engagement with peers, families, communities, and other key stakeholders in promoting their health and well-being.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]
