Mental Health and Resilience in First Generation College Students

Hometown: Burke, Virginia 

Department: Psychology 

Advisor: Elizabeth Raposa 

Only 25% of first-generation college students graduate within 6 years. Mental illnesses, as well as barriers to mental health resources, likely play a role. We will study the effects of perceived social support and barriers among first-gen students, on their emotional distress and use of mental health resources. Results will help to develop targeted interventions, which would support emotional well-being among these students and promote equal educational opportunities. Thank you for your support!
