Telepsychiatry for Schools & Universities

Supporting mental health and wellness at schools and universities can be very challenging. Millions of students suffer from mental health problems, yet only a fraction are receiving necessary treatment. Because schools sometimes serve as the de facto mental health system for children and young adults in the United States, it's critically important for students to have access to support services within the educational environment.
Suicide Statistics
Recent statistics published by the Center for Disease Control reveal that among students in grades 9-12 in the United States:
  • 17.0% of students seriously considered attempting suicide in the previous 12 months (22.4% of females and 11.6% of males).

  • 13.6% of students made a plan about how they would attempt suicide in the previous 12 months (16.9% of females and 10.3% of males).

  • 8.0% of students attempted suicide one or more times in the previous 12 months (10.6% of females and 5.4% of males).

  • 2.7% of students made a suicide attempt that resulted in an injury, poisoning, or an overdose that required medical attention (3.6% of females and 1.8% of males).

  • Additionally, at least 1 in 7 children have experienced child abuse and/or neglect in the past year, and this is likely an underestimate.

Information published by The American Psychological Association indicates that in the U.S., suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students and third leading cause of death for young people ages 15-24.
