Description: Anxiety is the top mental health concern among college students yet only one third of those suffering receive treatment. Many students with mental health issues are high achievers misunderstood as Type-A personalities. Active Minds and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) partnered to equip high achievers with mental health resources. This interactive session will give a voice to the issue, identify warning signs and illustrate the behaviors, attitudes and resources to arm frontline student affairs professionals in taking positive action across the country.
Learning outcomes:

  • Recognize signs and symptoms of high achievers who are in distress.
  • Apply tips for having a real conversation about mental health with high achievers.
  • Describe the benefit of a strong collegiate community with programs and resources to ensure success

Presenter Bios:
Alison Malmon is the founder and Executive Director of Active Minds, Inc., the leading national organization that uses students as the driving force to change the perception about mental health on college campuses.

Steve Loflin is the founder and CEO of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS). NSCS is the largest certified honor society recognizing the academic success of first- and second-year high achieving students on 330+ college campuses.
