Supporting Faculty and Staff Mental Health


How can better supporting the mental health of faculty and staff on college campuses help improve the mental health of college students—and educational institutions themselves?

Recent research shows that faculty and staff have reported significant increases in stress, burnout, and workload since the start of the pandemic. In this Mental Health Minute, Michelle B. Riba, MD, MS, discusses some ways we can better support the mental health of faculty and staff on college campuses so that they can be better able to support the mental health of their students.

Dr Riba is a professor in the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry, and codirector of Workplace Mental Health Solutions at the University of Michigan Eisenberg Family Depression Center.
