UW System to study student mental health needs on campus

The university of wisconsin system will be exploring how it can better respond to its students' mental health needs.

The decision to form groups to study this issue was made during a recent board of regents meeting.

Student visits to campus counseling centers have increased by 55 percent since 2010 according to the u-w system.

Mental health experts and people from across the system will form three work groups to study the issue.

"hopefully we can elevate this, draw more attention to it, make students feel more comfortable, and openly talking to us about it so we can help them deal with it and prevent serious problems. [and] make them more successful in the classroom."

The u-w system says it has already started taking stock of the services that are being provided on campuses and collecting ideas for improvement.

Additional approaches could be made over the next few months or early
