Inside the Research

While many college students experience suicidal ideation and may attempt suicide, reluctance to seek mental health services online often leads to low enrollment and high drop-out rates. This study will explore the barriers and preferences of college students towards online interventions. An engagement strategy will be developed and used to test the effectiveness of Enhanced Therapist Assisted Online. The goal is to facilitate the use of online mental health services among college students.
