Mental Health and Well-being in Academia
Academic institutions around the world are starting to recognize a mental health crisis in our students. But what about the mental health of faculty? Surveys reveal that 80% of academics view that competition has fostered mean and aggressive behavior in the workplace, and 36% have or would like to receive help for work-related anxiety or depression.

We are tackling the issue of faculty mental health in several ways. A goal is to understand how universities are responding to the needs of faculty.

Would you provide a narrative of how your institution has responded when a faculty member or you suffered from a mental health condition, such as depression? Several medical conditions can be stress induced or associated with depression, including abuse of alcohol or drugs, shingles, and migraines. When responding, please refrain from using names of specific individuals in your responses. The research will not collect your personally identifiable information, unless you inadvertently share it in your open-ended responses. All submissions will be de-identified and maintained in a confidential manner.

Thank you for helping in this important issue.

Yours sincerely,

Dr. Colin A. Chapman
