New Barnes & Noble Education Report Finds Gen Z College Students Grapple with Extreme Stress, Mental Health Challenges
Barnes & Noble Education, Inc. (NYSE:BNED), a leading provider of educational products and services solutions for higher education and K-12 institutions, today announced the findings from its "Mental Health & Well-Being on Campus: How We Better Care for the Whole Student" report.
Conducted by Barnes & Noble College Insights?, the report surveyed college students and parents of current college students to better understand the state of mental and physical well-being among college students today.
The report found that college students are under more stress than ever before - driven by a variety of factors like the current political environment, academic expectations, financial concerns, making friends and more. In addition, the report underscores the role of universities, parents, friends and extended family members to better assist students in addressing mental health issues. The report also cites the perspective from three experts on this topic - Daniel Eisenberg, Ph.D., Healthy Minds Network, University of Michigan, said Victor Schwartz, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of The Jed Foundation and Ron Goldman, co-founder and CEO of Kognito.
"Better understanding the current state of students' mental health and well-being on college campuses across the country has become a cornerstone initiative for BNED," said Mike Huseby, CEO of BNED. "Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of discussing this important topic with influential professionals in the field at the ASU+GSV Summit, the top education technology conference. In releasing this report, our goal is to continue this important conversation and provide universities, parents and students themselves with the information and best practices needed to alleviate mental health challenges on campuses nationwide."
