SUNY students are seeking more mental health support as they return to campus

Students returning to college in person this fall have expressed a bit of anxiety due to the drastic changes in their lives from the pandemic over the last two years.

SUNY Chancellor Jim Malatras said there has been a spike in students seeking mental health services across the entire system.

Malatras said before the pandemic around 1 out of 10 students sought mental health services, but now the numbers are 5 out of 10 or even higher in some schools at 8 out of 10.

The SUNY system has been given $24 million in stimulus funding that Malatras said he is planning to put toward mental health within the system for students.
