Webinar: Positive Mental Health: How libraries can help their communities thrive

May 23rd, 11:00 am EST

Student mental health was particularly hard hit as a result of the global pandemic and in a 2021 survey, nearly 75% of college presidents listed “students’ mental health” as their “most pressing issue.” Libraries are uniquely positioned in engaging with students and supporting a whole-university approach in delivering mental health support services. As safe places of knowledge and learning, they can play a pivotal role in promoting mental health and wellbeing among students, staff and researchers.

In this timely session, we’ll explore the ways in which academic libraries are stepping up and the approaches they are taking to serving the “whole student.”

  • Alejandro Marquez, Collection Development Librarian, Auraria Library (serving the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the Community College of Denver)
