From the 7C Claremont Mental Health Initiative

Want to give some input on your experiences with or perceptions of Monsour Counseling Services? Take the student-led survey we have been working on for two years! You can take it, whether you have used Monsour or not, because we want to know what you’ve heard, as well as your experiences. (The survey will take less than 10 minutes, and you can also be entered to win one of four $50 gift cards!)

The 7C Claremont Mental Health Initiative is a student-led initiative working to improve access to and start conversations about mental health services at the Claremont Colleges. This semester, with support from Monsour and the 7C Deans, we are distributing a survey to 7C students regarding perceptions of mental health resources, primarily focusing on Monsour.

We began conversations with other student groups and administration about two years ago, and hope that, through this survey, we can better understand the positives and negatives of our current mental health resources. The survey has been reviewed by faculty and students from the seven colleges, and we worked closely with Jason Siegel, a professor of survey design at Claremont Graduate University, to ensure that the questions were as unbiased and succinct as possible.

After getting approval from Monsour and the 7C Deans and distributing the survey, we plan on publishing summarized results for the students and administration. However, in order to do this, we need your help to get enough responses to ensure the data is representative of the 7C student body. We are also hoping to create a sustainable model by forming a student advisory board that will conduct any necessary future research and will work with the VP of Student Affairs, Janet Dickerson, as well as the 7C JED committee to take future steps. We hope that you will join us in making a difference!
