Hopelessness is growing at unprecedented rates among youth and adults around the world, and is the leading cause of suicide and primary symptom of depression. The JED Foundation found that 63% of college students say their emotional health is worse now than before the COVID-19 pandemic. A high proportion of college students are dealing with anxiety (82%), social isolation and loneliness (68%), depression (63%), and difficulty coping with stress in a healthy way (60%). One in five students (approximately 19%) stated that they had suicidal thoughts in the past month.
Designed to be completed as a class or individually, the Hopeful Mindsets on the College Campus course is a 10-week course that combines hope science, expert testimonials, and insights from recent college graduates to present the hope skills students need to create, maintain, and grow a hopeful mindset.
Hopeful Mindsets on the College Campus includes interviews with recent college graduates. The graduates discuss their hope journeys, the challenges they faced in college, and how they were ultimately able to use hope skills to overcome them.
The testimonies of those with lived experience are critical to this program, as they offer key insights into how others have coped with challenges similar to those we are facing. As we continue on our hope journey, it is always important to remember that we are not alone.
