Today is the one-year anniversary of the shootings at Virginia Tech that left 32 people dead. What have we learned? Perhaps quite a bit, a story in the Fargo Forum newspaper (reg. possibly required) suggests. It details how colleges and universities in that region are responding to the mental health needs of the students.
In some cases the efforts were underway even before last year’s killings, but a subsequent study of Minnesota college students showed a significant number have been diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lives.
