More and more students need mental health services. But colleges struggle to keep up - Caroline Simon, USA Today

Each tragic event, explosive research report or wave of student activism on a college campus adds to the growing realization among college administrators that mental health is a major concern. But providing adequate resources for mentally ill students is a significant challenge due to lack of funds and because the landscape has changed — colleges aren’t currently equipped to serve a generation of students who are, increasingly, entering college with diagnosed mental illnesses. Interviews with student activists, mental health experts and university administrators reveal that more and more students across the country are expecting their colleges to seriously address mental health — and often, it’s a struggle for universities to meet the demand. http://college.usatoday.com/2017/05/04/more-and-more-students-need-mental-health-services-but-colleges-struggle-to-keep-up/
