Young people today are facing significant mental health challenges. In an article in eCampus News, Cheryl Hyatt outlines the opportunity that college faculty and leadership have to equip students with the mental-health skills that enable long-term flourishing. She writes,

In addition to conveying concepts and competencies, faculty and staff in higher education also have an unparalleled opportunity to shape the character and habits of students. One of the biggest gifts we can give young adults is to model the traits they will need to thrive throughout their lives and careers.”
