HMN offers something unique/complementary in 2 ways:

  • Population-level approach (complements clinical perspective)
  • Starting point is mainly research

grant applications and project p roposals
Grant Applications and Project Proposals

Data from HMS were used to provide a rationale for specific proposals and initiatives, including:

Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention Grant

National College Depression Partnership

American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Interactive Screening Project

Internal Tufts grant for outreach to Asian/Asian-American students

data for campus p artners
Data for Campus Partners

Written reports and presentations to key administrators and stakeholders about the overall mental health status and needs of our students

Demonstrate the salience of mental health concerns to academic performance, and therefore to the mission of the university.

Support increase or maintenance of staffing for the Counseling Service.

Inform collaborative efforts with others. For example: campuswide diversity initiative; programs to support first gen. students; expansion of bystander education efforts.

data for the work of cmhs
Data for the Work of CMHS

Data about mental health needs, attitudes and behaviors among whole student body and various populations.

Helps us target outreach or programs to better meet the needs of those groups – for example, international students, Asian and Asian-American students, and men.

Use data to tailor messages for outreach purposes. For example, in our gatekeeper training, a Tufts film used in freshman orientation, CMHS website, and other talks and materials.

Benchmark variables over time. By conducting the survey every other year we can track progress related to specific initiatives, for example, about help-seeking attitudes and behaviors.

New Data Interface!

In a few clicks, we were able to pull key data. One example: what was the rate of past year treatment use among students with depression, comparing 2007 and 2014?

economic case for mental health services 2
Economic Case for Mental Health Services [2]

Economic case for program treating 500 depressed students:

  • Program/service cost ~ $500,000
  • Tuition from retained students: > $1 million
  • Lifetime earnings for students: > $2 million
