25% of students experience depression, and 21% screen positive for an anxiety disorder, according to the most recent Healthy Minds study. To meet students’ mental health needs, there is a clear urgency to continue to gain an understanding of the ever-changing mental health landscape on college and university campuses.

We hosted an engaging webinar where leading experts from the Healthy Minds Network, Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors (AUCCCD), and Kognito shared research findings and insights about:

  • The state of student mental health and related issues in college student populations.
  • Preparedness of faculty, staff, and students to support students in psychological distress and connect them to support services.
  • Challenges and strategies for college and university counseling centers, for their efforts to increase access to supportive services.

Suggested Audiences:

  • VP of Student Affairs
  • VP Student Life
  • Director of Counseling Center
  • Residence Life Director
  • Dean of Student Services

Dr. Albright’s passion for learning and its application in the fields of health and behavioral health fuel his research activities at Kognito. Dr. Albright leads a team of researchers at Kognito in evaluating the efficacy of its immersive learning and assessment role-play simulations to bring about sustained behavior changes in the areas of social, emotional, and physical health. His research involves integrating empirically-based findings drawn from neuroscience such as emotional regulation, mentalizing, and empathy, as well as components of social cognitive learning models including motivational interviewing and adult learning theory. He is a clinical psychologist who received his Ph.D. from The City University of New York in the area of experimental cognition with concentrations in neuropsychology and applied psychophysiology. Dr. Albright is the former Chair of the Department of Psychology at Baruch College of the City University of New York and has received distinguished teaching awards at both Baruch and New York University. He is actively involved in publishing and presents at numerous conferences addressing how game-based role-play simulations can cost-effectively support public health initiatives. These initiatives are focused on bringing about positive changes in behavior and are designed to impact large numbers of geographically dispersed people comprised of vulnerable populations.
