Grant Applications and Project
Data from HMS were used to provide a rationale for
specific proposals and initiatives, including:
Garrett Lee Smith Suicide Prevention Grant
National College Depression Partnership
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Interactive Screening
Internal Tufts grant for outreach to Asian/Asian-American students
Data for Campus Partners
Written reports and presentations to key administrators
and stakeholders about the overall mental health status
and needs of our students
Demonstrate the salience of mental health concerns to academic
performance, and therefore to the mission of the university.
Support increase or maintenance of staffing for the Counseling
Inform collaborative efforts with others. For example: campuswide
diversity initiative; programs to support first gen. students;
expansion of bystander education efforts.
Data for the Work of CMHS
Data about mental health needs, attitudes and behaviors
among whole student body and various populations.
Helps us target outreach or programs to better meet the needs of
those groups – for example, international students, Asian and
Asian-American students, and men.
Use data to tailor messages for outreach purposes. For example, in
our gatekeeper training, a Tufts film used in freshman orientation,
CMHS website, and other talks and materials.
Benchmark variables over time. By conducting the survey every
other year we can track progress related to specific initiatives, for
example, about help-seeking attitudes and behaviors.
New Data Interface!
In a few clicks, we were able to pull key data. One example: what
was the rate of past year treatment use among students with
depression, comparing 2007 and 2014?
