Mental Health at Princeton: Challenges, Opportunities and the Path Forward
May 26 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Moderator: Zhan Okuda-Lim ’15, founding chair, USG Mental Health Initiative, and Ph.D. candidate in policy analysis, Pardee RAND Graduate School. Panelists: Mayu Takeuchi ’23, past USG president; Hannah Kapoor ’23, past USG vice president; Calvin Chin, director of counseling and psychological services; and W. Rochelle Calhoun, vice president for campus life.
Since 2020, Princeton students and the broader University community have faced the stressors and disruptions of the COVID-19 pandemic and have grieved the tragic deaths of several University community members. Through this, students and campus partners have collaborated to identify gaps and address critical needs in mental health resources and supports, while continuing to address stigma in campus culture and climate. In 2022, a team of Undergraduate Student Government (USG) leaders, the Office of the Vice President for Campus Life, University Health Services, and multiple campus stakeholders reviewed these gaps and needs, culminating in the Exploring Mental Health Needs at Princeton report and ongoing activities to implement the report’s recommendations. Hear from USG and University leaders as they update alumni on the challenges and opportunities facing the mental health needs of students and the University community. Please bring your questions for the Q&A to follow the panel discussion, and invite fellow alumni, friends, and guests for this important conversation.
