Universities' Response To Supporting Mental Health Of College Students During The COVID-19 Pandemic
from Psychiatric Times
Public health emergencies may present a range of unanticipated potential stressors to vulnerable patients and communities. Psychiatric patients can be disproportionately affected by these conditions due to pre-existing health disparities, lack of resources, or limited executive functioning under stress, all of which may impede effective responses during an emergency. As college students comprise a demographic with a growing burden of mental illness, public health emergencies pose special challenges to this population.
