We go the extra mile for the mental wellness of our students
Education and mental health are some of the latest trends, and we could not agree more. Poor mental health has been linked to academic performance and success and impacts social relationships and physical health.
Atlantis University is aware of the importance of Mental Wellness and we have developed specific tools and support teams to help our students, not just for their academic success but also for their overall well-being.
As stated by Natali Alvarez, AU Faculty Director “Academic support is the extended arm of our university, they play an important role in supporting student success and within this responsibility is the ability to assess and direct students from academic tutoring to counseling. The role of this multidisciplinary group of professionals is truly to support our students in various areas for their overall wellness and success.”
We train Comprehensive Professionals
The overall well-being of our students is our focus. We want to ensure our students feel supported in every way. Success is more likely achievable when students find themselves in a safe and supported environment.
The benefits of mental health for students
Mental health is a growing issue in the U.S., increasing more than 9.7% during the year of the pandemic according to Mental health America (https://mhanational.org/issues/state-mental-health-america). “As an institution, we have brainstormed on best practices to ensure that we put our students at the heart of everything we do. For this, we have tasked our student support group to be the force that guides our students to attain appropriate assistance.”, Alvarez said.
Regarding some of the best practices, Alvarez exposed that “Some good practices for student wellness is to have an integrated counseling/support team readily available to offer support and guidance.”
