Supporting College Students with Mental Health Conditions on Campus: Information Session on HYPE on Campus Webinar

May 27, 2020
Michelle Mullen

Want to bring HYPE-on-Campus to Your School? Beginning in January 2021, Helping Youth on the Path to Employment (HYPE) is looking for 4-year state universities to partner with us on a trial of HYPE-on-Campus.  You can be a part of this exciting opportunity to deliver HYPE-on-Campus services, test its effectiveness, and become a national leader in innovative services for college students with mental health conditions.

HYPE on Campus is designed to reduce academic disruptions and improve academic performance and persistence through developing executive functioning skills and coordinating on and off campus support for students with MHC, specifically disability, counseling, and employment-related services. HYPE on Campus provides both direct skills teaching using a cognitive remediation intervention to develop EF skills as well as additional “hands-on” support in applying these skills in order to develop strong self-regulated learning skills to enhance academic performance. 

Ideal programs will have:

  • A strong orientation and philosophy for serving students with mental health conditions;
  • The capacity to serve more students mental health conditions (e.g. mood, anxiety, and psychosis-related diagnoses) within services;
  • Strong working relationships across Disability Services, Counseling Services, Career Services, and Learning Center;
  • The ability to bring together peer mentors to help provide select elements of HYPE-on-Campus ; and
  • Be interested in providing feedback to enhance the implementation of HYPE-on-Campus.

If you are selected as a partner site, programs and practitioners will receive:

  • Free training in the HYPE-on-Campus program by expert trainers.
  • Free technical assistance and student consultation throughout HYPE-on-Campus implementation.
  • HYPE-on-Campus implementation materials, including manual and worksheets.
