Student-run organizations Hill Communications and TNH have teamed up with Real Chemistry, a global health innovation firm, to release the findings from a semester-long research study detailing the mental health climate on campus for Syracuse University students. Based on a pool of 131 respondents, the report, titled “Minds of SU: Student Mental Health Research,” aims to shed light onto the mental state of students.
Hill Communications director Nacy Woods says, “As the world inches back towards normalcy, we find value in reflecting upon and understanding the impacts the pandemic has had on the mental health of young people. This campaign aims to foster community by connecting individuals with others through personal experiences as well as providing a humane and intimate
perspective about life as young adults over the past two years.”
Key statistics found in the report include:
These findings have helped to structure a campaign launched by Hill Communications and TNH entitled Minds of SU. It seeks to raise awareness about mental health initiatives, resources and strategies and promote connectivity on campus by appealing to collective human experiences. The main component, the Instagram account @mindsofsu, features informational graphics, student stories and lighthearted content.
