PAWcast: Students Discuss Mental Health at Princeton Princeton Alumni Weekly Podcasts

    • Education

Concerns have been rising about student mental health on college campuses over the past few years — including at Princeton. To examine this issue, PAW asked three students who have been leaders and mentors in this area to discuss what’s going on: Chioma Ugwonali ’24, Isaac Lunar ’24, and Issa Mudashiru ’25. In a wide-ranging conversation, they discussed why Princeton students feel intense pressure to achieve, what mental health resources the University makes available to them, and why they could take better care of themselves, but too often don’t. “Taking care of your mental-emotional well-being is not seen as valued on this campus,“ Ugwonali said, ”and … in our culture, in our society at large.”
