Daniel Eisenberg, professor at the U-M School of Public Health, provides an overview of research in the Healthy Minds Network, a growing national initiative to collect and disseminate data and evidence related to college student mental health. He will address questions such as: Are mental health concerns increasing in college populations? What are the greatest needs in this area? What are the best opportunities to improve student mental health?

Eisenberg is a health economist and professor at U-M. His goal is to improve understanding of how to invest effectively in the mental health of young people, particularly college age populations. He directs the Healthy Minds Network, which conducts a national survey of student mental health and develops digital media interventions.

Emergent Research events are aimed at better understanding the various types of research undertaken across campus, particularly as they relate to library services and support, opportunities for collaboration, data management and preservation, and beyond.
