70% of college presidents say that mental health is one of their most pressing problems.
Studies demonstrate that better student mental health positively impacts academic performance and graduation rates*. Investing in student mental health makes good economic sense too: 30 students who stay in college for two more years at $20K/year tuition yield $1.2M in tuition revenues, and their lifetime earnings increase by $3M**.
There has never been a better and more urgent time to invest in your students’ mental health as they return to campus after COVID.
Student mental health initiatives qualify for funding under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) relief legislation, including the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF III).

Bring håp to your college.
We are inviting a small number of colleges to actively take part in our pilot during the 2021/22 academic year. We are looking for innovators who want to offer the opportunity to their students and staff to test and help evolve the app. We’d especially love to bring håp to community colleges and HBCUs.
If you are faculty or staff, please please get in touch to explore how we could include your college in our pilot.
If you are a student, you can bring håp to your college as a håp Ambassador.
