Community College Student Mental Health

Faculty Experiences and Institutional Actions

«

Simply put, I can’t think of anyone connected to community colleges or community college research who doesn’t need to read this book, now! Latz’s years of research on students’ mental health intersects with our critical need for information and triangulates with great writing, resulting in a book you can’t put down! The comprehensive review of the literature on students’ mental health is presented via engaging writing followed by faculty stories of their experiences which will be familiar to many. The book thankfully ends with specific, doable steps for faculty and staff (who are not mental health professionals), to be able to use. Today.

In Community College Student Mental Health: Faculty Experiences and Institutional Actions, Latz describes how colleges struggle to meet the surging demand for mental health services on campus. Latz is at the forefront of researching the mental health crisis students are encountering coming out of the global COVID-19 pandemic and how community colleges can play an important part in addressing these concerns.

Dr. Latz uses her research in a way that brings to life the very real mental health needs of community college students. Faculty and student experiences are used to describe the growing concerns of leaders across the country. Dr. Latz concludes with practical approaches to addressing the concerns and issues that must be addressed by community colleges if they want to contribute to the wellbeing and success of their students.

Amanda Latz’s book couldn’t be more timely and necessary for community colleges and those who teach in them. Student mental health has been identified as reaching crisis levels in colleges, intensified by the COVID pandemic, and faculty are on the front lines—this is especially true in community colleges. In Community College Student Mental Health, Latz provides critical insight into community college faculty experiences, drawing on her own research and providing practical insights into “what we can do now.” This book is an exceptionally valuable resource to anyone working with community college students.

Amanda Latz makes a timely and critical contribution to helping community college leaders understand the current landscape of student mental health. Her unique approach of open-ended discussions with faculty -- who see students every day -- brings nuance and a welcome reminder that mental health is central to the academic mission of a college. Highly recommended.

Dr. Amanda Latz's work in this book is nothing short of intentional and thoughtful. Finally we have work that encompasses the extraordinary world of the community college—the students, the staff and the college’s vital role in higher education. Dr. Latz’s ability to recognize the essential, yet often unseen role community college faculty play in the lives of their students, including their mental health, is unmatched. This book lays the groundwork for beginning to better support the mental health needs of this often-overlooked population of students. It is a must read for all administrators, educational advocates, and policy makers.

The COVID-19 pandemic shone a light on the mental health issues our students deal with, and Amanda O. Latz focuses that light on a key group (faculty) who work with those students daily. Latz herself is a former community college instructor, and her love and respect for the community college, its faculty and students shines throughout the text. Drawing heavily from interviews with 22 community college faculty, the wider literature, and her own experience, Latz paints a portrait of the important role that community college faculty play in the lives of their students and the passion, strength, and care with which they approach their involvement. She recognizes the critical role that faculty members play in supporting students experiencing mental health issues and the resulting impact on the faculty themselves. This book provides insight and much needed information that will be helpful to those leading community colleges at all levels. This book is a unique and relevant contribution that I highly recommend for current and future leaders in the field.
