Project Details

Description

Augmented Resource and Service Delivery for Mental Health at Arizona State University (ASU), is designed to build an infrastructure for developing and implementing selective and indicated prevention strategies to reduce mental health and substance abuse indicators impacting academic success among students who are most at risk for these challenges, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Questioning (LGBQ), gender non-binary, Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) disabled, 21-24 year old, and veteran students. Goals for this project are to enhance and scale a comprehensive, collaborative, evidence-based outreach model and increase student help seeking behavior to reduce mental health and substance abuse indicators impacting academic success among at-risk subpopulations across four ASU campuses in the greater Phoenix area. These goals will be accomplished through the development of a comprehensive training program and support groups designed for student leaders to facilitate; development and dissemination of informational materials and videos; with education, groups and messages aimed to increase skills, knowledge, helping and help-seeking behavior; and by increasing access to mental health support through telehealth counseling, crisis text and call service 24/7; improving the referral process; providing professional-led therapeutic groups and student-led support groups. Central to the plan is the formation of a 10-member Counseling Services Outreach Team (CSOT) comprised of ASU Counseling Services mental health professionals and Live Well @ ASU health promotion/prevention services professionals who will work together to implement the grant project; and the formation of a 10-member Mental Health/Substance Abuse Outreach Advisory Group (OAG) comprised of students representing LGBTQ, BIPOC, disabled, veteran and age specific groups, who will serve as consultants and collaborators for the CSOT. Project objectives are to decrease the severity of mental health and substance abuse indicators impacting academic success by 5%, and to increase student mental health service utilization by 20%, by September 30, 2024. We aim to increase training participants by 20% annually in order to accomplish these objectives.
