Balancing Safety and Support on Campus: A Guide for Campus Teams

April 9, 2013


In the wake of recent tragedies, it is clear that college administrations need to continue to look out for their students’ wellbeing and to coordinate these efforts. As a result “campus teams” have been formed to assess, support and respond to troubled or potentially violent students.

The Higher Education Mental Health Alliance (HEMHA), led by The Jed Foundation, recognized the need for a resource that would help both existing and new teams make informed decisions about their structure, scope, functions, and day-to-day operations. Balancing Safety and Support on Campus: A Guide for Campus Teams summarizes the existing literature on campus teams and suggests some of the key issues that should be considered when creating or managing a team.

The World Health Organization defines “mental health” “as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.” In using this definition, S2i recognizes that some mental health challenges reflect brain diseases that, like physical diseases, require appropriate stigma-free and patient-centered care and include both mental health and substance use disorders. Other mental health challenges stem from social conditions and marginalization and require different forms of interventions.
