For some, higher education is a time of learning and growth. But it’s also a time of stress as students manage assignments, extracurriculars and their lives and relationships outside the classroom. Mental health is also part of the picture; about 1 in 5 Americans age 18 or older are dealing with a mental health condition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

MPR News host Kerri Miller led a wide-ranging conversation Wednesday, Feb. 5 at St. Catherine University with college students and a panel of mental health and higher education experts. This was in partnership with Call to Mind, MPR’s initiative to foster new conversations about mental health.
