Abstract

In the spring of 2013, a USM Muskie Graduate student conducted an assessment of mental health policies and services at the University of Southern Maine to help inform the University how it might better meet the mental health needs of its students. These pressures can place a university’s obligations to educate students and to meet their health needs in conflict with each other. The assessment involved in-depth interviews with 11 individuals in departments who were identified as having an important role in addressing student mental health needs.
