Depression on College Campuses Conference: Redesigning Structures, Spaces, and Processes to Promote Wellness


  • 915 East Washington Street Ann Arbor, MI, 48109 United States (map)

Course Description:

Each year the Depression on College Campuses Conference hosts attendees from over 50 colleges and universities from across the nation for a focused review of recent research and practical advances in our understanding of depressive illnesses in college students.

Recent research indicates that approximately one in four college students screen positive for depression, and the demand for clinical services continues to grow. While traditional approaches remain core to our work, we must also explore how environmental strategies can be used as part of a comprehensive approach to create a campus culture and learning environment that supports mental health.

Join us for the 16th Annual Depression on College Campuses Conference to learn about new research findings, innovative design initiatives, model programs, and policies which demonstrate how redesigning the physical and social environments on a campus can reduce suicide risk and promote mental health.
