Healthy colleges are made up of healthy students.
While inadequate support for student mental health has long been a simmering problem on campuses nationwide, it has become a crisis in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Higher ed leaders and school administrators reckoning with the fact the resources they provide are inadequate are turning to SHARPEN for help.

The U.S. Department of Education released new guidance on school mental health. Here is how Sharpen aligns with all recommendations.
Sharpen is proud to partner with University of West Georgia as part of the university's commitment to improving the mental health and overall wellness of both students and faculty. In the video below, current and former members of the UWG team discuss the mental health challenges faced by young adults and how Sharpen is making a difference.
"Knowing that our students have access to a wealth of resources to support their mental health is reassuring, and also another important step we can take to reduce stigma around mental health in healthcare."
