According to the official
report of the UC Student Mental Health Committee, LGBT students are
a higher risk population for mental health concerns. The report recommends
restoring staffing levels in LGBT Resource Centers. Students of color,
graduate students, and international students are also vulnerable populations.
Below are excerpts from the September 2006 Report:
Lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender (LGBT) and racially and ethnically underrepresented students,
who can feel alienated from general campus populations, are other examples
of atrisk groups.
Targeted Interventions for Vulnerable Groups
3) Restore staffing
levels in offices particularly impacted by student mental health interventions
and who service more vulnerable populations (e.g., Office of Student
Life; Student Judicial Affairs; Educational Opportunity Program; Ombuds;
International Students; Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Center;
Retention/Learning Center; and Cross-Cultural Centers).
