I’m writing with a post from ACE’s Higher Education Today blog. Under their section on Policy & Research / Student Support & Success is a series of posts about student mental health and wellbeing.

One of them is this great post by Ellen Bara Stolzenberg on longitudinal trends in student health as measured using CIRP data. What we see in that post are declines in students’ self-reported mental and physical health since 1985. Women and people who identify as Latinx seem to be particularly affected. The post has some great graphics that beautifully illustrate these trends.

Other posts in the series discuss post-traditional learners and students on the autism spectrum. There’s lots of great material here. Have fun surfing!
