The AJC asked biology major Collin Spencer to write about mental health at Georgia Tech. In his article, he explains the status of mental health at Georgia Tech and why it continues to worsen. Yet he also highlights efforts underway to combat the problem and provide support to students struggling with depression, anxiety, and extreme stress.
Collin manages the Intercollegiate Mental Health Conference for Georgia Tech and oversees the allocation of a million-dollar fund for mental health as chair of the Joint Allocations Committee. He intends to pursue further graduate studies in public policy.
