Welcome and About the Healthy Minds Network The Healthy Minds Network Research-to-practice network based at University of Michigan Public health approach to mental health among young people HMN Research-to-Practice Objectives: (1) produce knowledge (research) (2) distribute knowledge (dissemination) (3) use knowledge (practice) 5
HMN Constituents Researchers Clinicians Advocates Campus administrators Students
Research-to-Practice in College Student Mental Health 7 Ideal field for the research-practice link to flourish: Active Minds, AUCCCD, ACCA, ACHA, ACPA, NASPA, Center for Collegiate Mental Health, Jed Foundation, National College Depression Partnership, National Research Consortium of Counseling Centers in Higher Education, SPRC, and many others! HMN offers something unique/complementary in 2 ways: (1)Population-level approach (complements clinical perspective) (2)Starting point is mainly research
HMN’s Research-to-Practice Agenda 8
Healthy Minds Study Began in 2005 >100 campuses, >100,000 respondents Main Measures Mental health screens (e.g., PHQ-9, GAD-7, SCOFF) Health behaviors (e.g., substance use, exercise, sleep) Attitudes and knowledge about services Service use Academic and social environment Full questionnaire at 9

Introducing HMN’s Interactive Data Interface Online database for all HMS and HBS data Allows users to explore data quickly and with ease Log-in as ‘guest’ to view national data sets Log-in with username and password to view your school’s data Instructions at: 13
Quick Tour of Interface National data HMS 2014, University of Michigan HBS 2014, University of Michigan 14
Joe Behen, PhD Executive Director of Counseling, Health, and Disability Services School of the Art Institute of Chicago Private, urban school of art & design 3,300 students—undergraduate and graduate Counseling, health and disability services administratively integrated within Wellness Center Unique mental health needs among art students Much interest and experience in and support of college student mental health efforts
HMS at SAIC  Participated in 2009 and 2012 Eisenberg (PI) campus visit in 2011 Ongoing consultation/collaboration with HMS team Built into GLS Campus Suicide Prevention Grant Art school consortium
HMS at SAIC  Broad and deep understanding of the mental health needs and status of SAIC students at the population-level Ongoing work with HMN researchers and SAIC Relationship between mental health/illness variables and retention/attrition Essential to advocacy for resources
Marilyn Downs, PhD Director of Outreach, Counseling & Mental Health Service Tufts University Private university located near Boston 5,000 undergraduate and 3,500 graduate students Healthy Minds Study in 2007, 2010, 2012, and 2014
Grant Applications and Project Proposals Data from HMS were used to provide a rationale for specific proposals and initiatives, including: Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention Grant National College Depression Partnership American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Interactive Screening Project Internal Tufts grant for outreach to Asian/Asian-American students
Data for Campus Partners Written reports and presentations to key administrators and stakeholders about the overall mental health status and needs of our students Demonstrate the salience of mental health concerns to academic performance, and therefore to the mission of the university. Support increase or maintenance of staffing for the Counseling Service. Inform collaborative efforts with others. For example: campuswide diversity initiative; programs to support first gen. students; expansion of bystander education efforts.
Data for the Work of CMHS Data about mental health needs, attitudes and behaviors among whole student body and various populations. Helps us target outreach or programs to better meet the needs of those groups – for example, international students, Asian and Asian-American students, and men. Use data to tailor messages for outreach purposes. For example, in our gatekeeper training, a Tufts film used in freshman orientation, CMHS website, and other talks and materials. Benchmark variables over time. By conducting the survey every other year we can track progress related to specific initiatives, for example, about help-seeking attitudes and behaviors.
New Data Interface! In a few clicks, we were able to pull key data. One example: what was the rate of past year treatment use among students with depression, comparing 2007 and 2014? WomenMenTotal %17%35% %54%51%
Economic Case for Mental Health Services 
Economic Case for Mental Health Services  Economic case for program treating 500 depressed students: Program/service cost ~ $500,000 Tuition from retained students: > $1 million Lifetime earnings for students: > $2 million Eisenberg, D., Golberstein, E., Hunt, J. (2009). Mental Health and Academic Success in College. B.E. Journal of Economic Analysis & Policy 9(1) (Contributions): Article 40.
Uses of HMN Research Assess needs in population (overall and in sub-groups) Benchmark with peer institutions Raise awareness of mental health issues Advocate for resources (grants, services, staffing, programs) Evaluate programs
