Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Oct. 31, 2012, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) released the survey report College Students Speak: A Survey Report on Mental Health.

The press release headline and lead paragraph incorrectly stated that 64 percent of students who experienced mental health problems in college ended up withdrawing from school.

The press release should have stated that 64 percent of students with mental health problems who were no longer in school had withdrawn due to a mental health related reason.

Of the 765 students with mental health problems who responded to the survey, 10 percent were no longer in school.

The error did not appear in the survey report which was linked to the release.

The press release reported correctly that:

  • Overall, 70 percent of the survey's respondents rated their campus mental health services and supports as "excellent" or "good," but 50 percent of those students who dropped out for mental health reasons never accessed them.
  • Overall, 79 percent of students identified mental health training for college faculty and staff as "extremely important

The error was brought to NAMI's attention on Nov. 29.
