In my two prior blogs, I first described the evidence pointing to the current college student mental health crisis (CSMHC) and then I reported on the various possible contributing causes. In this final blog of the series, I outline some of the key ingredients that I believe are crucial to begin to address the problem.
My vision to address the CSMHC is to develop a resiliency initiative that functions to reverse the trend of mental health deterioration and fosters much greater levels of resiliency, well-being and adaptive living among college students. The following are key premises that I believe are necessary ingredients of an effective solution to the CSMHC.
I am personally just starting on this journey to see if the unified approach to psychology I have developed might provide a guide to start to address this crucial issue. I welcome thoughts and suggestions from readers who have ideas about these proposals or additional steps that might be taken.
