Depression on College Campuses Conference Closing Keynote Address: Strategic Engagements: UCLA Depression Grand Challenge & Resilience Peer Network

Elizabeth Gong-Guy, PhD, executive director, Campus and Student Resilience, UCLA

In the past decade, UCLA has developed a network of services to support student wellness across an array of domains extending far beyond health and mental health. Despite these efforts, the steady rise in mental health service demands has continued to exert pressure on CAPS services leading to reduced appointment availability and lengthy wait-times for students needing less than crisis or emergent care. The UCLA Depression Grand Challenge is partnered with Campus & Student Resilience to train and engage students in a Resilience Peer Network to support the delivery of a robust evidence based internet cognitive behavioral therapy to students screened for mild to moderate depression and anxiety. This talk provides a preliminary overview of our findings, and describes our successes in bringing a scalable screening, early intervention, treatment, and resilience-building program embedded in research to our students.
