Congress has begun working on the mental health of students

Almost every day, a new study about the mental health of college students appears. By quoting some measure of grief, anxiety, burning sensation or unhealthy coping skills, these studies say the same thing: college students are struggling.

Before the epidemic was caught, the students’ understanding of mental health problems was growing and the stigma surrounding these problems was slowly breaking down. The epidemic, and how deeply it has affected young people, has brought the issue to the center of public conversation and is now in Washington.

President Joe Biden recently called on colleges to use the federal Covid Relief Fund to add mental health support to students, and by the end of June, the House of Representatives passed two bills related to the mental health of college students.
