The Caring Universities project is embedded within the World Health Organization (WHO) College Student Mental Health Surveys (WMH-ICS) led by prof. dr. Ronald Kessler (Harvard Medical School). This international initiative aims at improving our knowledge on college students’ mental wellbeing. Realizing the needs of students will help us in prevention but also in early detection and treatment of mental disorders during college years.
Caring Universities takes it one step further by also offering free web-based interventions to students in need.
