Reaching Out to Students in Crisis

For many students, the college experience can be unbearably stressful. Academic pressure, separation from the family and a sense of vulnerability can all lead to a mental-health crisis. And for this generation of young adults, they’ve also had to contend with a stifling once-in-a-century pandemic.

To help students better understand these mounting pressures and how to deal with them, the University of Utah’s College of Engineering, College of Law and the University Counseling Center are hosting a talk with Salt Lake City-based author and mental wellness advocate, Lark Dean Galley, whose own 19-year-old son died by suicide in 2019.
