Health in High Ability Students Panel Discussion and Q & A: 11/13/17

The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) will host a webinar at 8 p.m. (ET) on Monday, November 13 to address the health challenges of high achieving students, as they grow from high school to top tier universities and beyond.

According to National Alliance on Mental Illness, mental health conditions in 2017 are common among teens and young adults: 1 in 5 lives with a mental health condition—half develop the condition by age 14 and three quarters by age 24. A 2015 survey by the Association for University and College Counseling Center Directors (AUCCD) reports that more than 47 percent of students seeking counseling suffer from anxiety, and 40 percent report suffering from depression.

The Mental Health Challenges of Gifted Teens notes, however, that being intellectually gifted “might also come with mental illnesses, such as depression, anxiety, social ineptness, and even psychosis. Typically, we want to think that those children, adolescents, and adults who are gifted lead very fulfilling and rewarding lives.  However, having such capacity might also inherently mean psychological challenges.”

Please join the Center for Excellence in Education for a timely and important discussion on this vital subject.

WHEN:  Monday, November 13, 8 pm ET
