Raise Awareness of Mental Health on Campus
When college students are struggling with stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues, the idea of seeking help can feel overwhelming. Give students, and those who support them, a safe and easy-to-use resource that could make all the difference to their overall mental health. In partnership with the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation, Gale has created Cameron’s Collection, a collection of eBooks, to help academic libraries privately support college students in need of mental health and wellness information—including where to find professional help, mental health services, support groups, and counseling.
Cameron’s Collection can promote awareness of mental health and wellness issues on college campuses and act as a starting point for dialogue and behavior modifications. The 15 eBook titles available span diverse topics, including suicide prevention and mental health, panic disorders, mindfulness and self-care, the psychology of socializing, deconstructing stigmas, stress and anxiety, the influence of race and culture, self-confidence, and more.
Available on Gale’s eBook platform, this collection offers academic libraries targeted resources and guidance that college students can reference anytime, anywhere, and on any device. Students can save and download audio files onto their mobile device with Readspeaker text-to-speech technology. This helps maintain their privacy and discretion on and off campus while accessing this mental health resource. International and ESL students can access Cameron’s Collection and benefit from article and interface-level translation that offers nearly 40 languages options.
