    • Identify and share mental health resources
    • Promote full community engagement in the mental health continuum of care
    • Advocate for improvements in college student mental health
    • Develop and disseminate resources and guides
    • Endorse evidence-based best practices


Through focus on advocacy actions, policy development and review, practice dissemination, and the promotion of research – across the mental health continuum – HEMHA is committed to advancing mental health throughout the realm of higher education and improving student recruitment, retention and learning outcomes.
