Psychiatrist Urges Prioritizing Learning About Mental Healthcare In College Setting

In an opinion piece for USA Today (10/13), former American Psychiatric Association president Jeffrey Lieberman, MD, chair of psychiatry at Columbia University and New York Presbyterian Hospital, writes, “In the course of my career, I have seen many young patients whose education and lives were derailed by the onset of mental illness that was not adequately managed while in college.” Dr. Lieberman urges students and parents to “acknowledge the possibility that mental health care might be needed in the course [of] their college education, and make learning about it a priority.”
