Confronting the multifaceted challenge of student well-being takes a creative approach – including meeting students on their terms.

“Most U.S. colleges and universities provide mental health services and have trained specialists to help their students. But Nathaan Demers notes that such resources are not always enough of a solution.

Demers is a trained clinical psychologist. He is also vice president and director of clinical programs for a website called You at College.

The site is a joint project of Grit Digital Health, a Colorado-based business, and Colorado State University, in Fort Collins, Colorado. It aims to create solutions for mental health issues in ways that go beyond traditional methods.”
