Description

Equitable Mental Health Service Delivery for Low-Income College Students of Color: Meeting their Unique Needs with Single-Sessions

Institutions of higher education are facing a crisis of access to mental health services. Simultaneously, research has shown that low-income college students of color are vulnerable to mental health concerns due to histories of poverty, racism, and discrimination.

This presentation provides an overview of a capstone project comprising three distinct products. It aims to explore solutions to this population’s unique mental health needs. First, the results of the systematic literature review unravel how the needs of low-income students of color are met within existing college mental health service delivery models. The second explores the role of theory in building a robust ground for innovative solutions.

An overview of a multidimensional theoretical framework composed of theories of Access, Minority Stress, and Intersectionality lays the ground for designing an equitable service delivery model. Lastly, the components of an innovative approach to equitable college mental health service delivery are reviewed, focusing on single-session intervention.

Learning Objectives:

  1.  Participants will be able to identify how the needs of low-income students of color are met within existing college mental health service delivery models.
  2.  Participants will be able to describe the role of theories of Access, Minority Stress, and Intersectionality in comprehending how to meet the needs of low-income college students of color.
