Overview

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:

Risk Student Populations

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.

Tier 2: 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).
