Rising rates of major depressive disorder are fueling a student mental health crisis. As college attendance most often occurs at the same age as first onset of schizophrenia and many other mental health conditions, the need for new tools and resources to offer preventive, early, and increased access to care is critical. This presentation will focus on how digital mental health interventions for student mental health care can offer a new suite of actionable solutions today and innovation in care tomorrow. The presentation will cover the efficacy and effectiveness of digital mental health interventions that have been tested in clinical trials, and will review the dissemination and implementation of these tools on campuses across the country with a focus on serious mental illness. Attention will be given to data and results in terms of a social justice and a health equity lens.
