According to the Center for Collegiate Mental Health, for the seventh year in a row, college counseling centers report an increase in the number of students seeking treatment who represent "threat-to-self."

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and concerns around mental health are a big issue in our society at large - and on college campuses.

Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among college students, and national data indicates that the problem is not unique.

On Second Thought host Virginia Prescott speaks with Barry Schreier.

Barry Schreier is director of the University Counseling Service at the University of Iowa, and communications committee chair at the Association of University and College Counseling Center Directors. He joined On Second Thought to talk about resources that aim to address these mental health concerns.
