Robin Glenn, BASE Education co-founder and 7 Mindsets Chief Strategy and Business Development Officer, was recently interviewed for a Fox News Digital article about student mental health on college campuses. In the article, Glenn discusses how schools and educators must be proactive and require students to engage with the mental health resources available. She also spoke about some of the factors contributing to the mental health crisis among college students.

School violence incidents such as the Parkland School shooting were increasing, and students’ physical and mental well-being were at critical levels. New Caney Independent School District, northeast of Houston, Texas, understood that social emotional learning (SEL) and the missed opportunities to identify students with deficits played out in school–specifically in school violence.
