Abstract:
Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe current services available to students with mental health issues on Long Island college campuses and to explore the concept of disclosure when treating and managing a student with a mental illness on a college campus. Aims: The aims of this study are to: 1. describe mental health services available on campus to students attending college on Long Island 2. explore beliefs, barriers, and facilitators to disclosure to families of a student being treated for a mental illness. Theoretical Framework: Conceptual Framework: American College Health Association's Guidelines for College Health Centers and the National Mental Health Association guidelines for delivery of care to college students. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): Methods: Methods: Study had IRB approval. A 27 question survey was developed for this study and was mailed to all directors of college health services on Long Island, NY (n=30). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and narrative analysis. Results: Results: Results: Return of 10 surveys for response rate of 33%. Many mental health services are provided to students on Long Island college campuses including on-campus counseling, screening for mental health disorders, and limited treatment for mental health disorders. All respondent institutions had a policy which would require written permission of the student to disclose health information to parents/guardians (n=10). Few institutions had systems set up to address family issues involving a student mental health crisis. Conclusions and Implications: Conclusion: Larger campuses appeared to have the resources to address student mental health issues. There were gaps in the delivery of care, in systems to communicate information to family members, and in staff coverage and training. Further research is necessary to review best practices to deliver mental health care to students on college campuses and to manage family need for information while remaining compliant with privacy laws.
