YOU at College shares how human-centered research through a public/private partnership allowed for a fresh solution to a widespread and complex challenge.
“Grit Digital Health partnered with Colorado State University to find a solution to help our students succeed.

What surfaced were extremely simple but eye-opening insights:
- Mental health challenges in college don’t occur in a vacuum,

- Every student is unique in their strengths and risk factors necessitating equally personalized solutions.”
