Campaign Priority: Subsidizing Mental Health Services

Due to the positive impact that last year’s Student Philanthropy Campaign (SPC) made on mental health services and support at Harvey Mudd, the campus elected to support a similarly-focused priority again for this year’s campaign.

Last year with just over $4,500 raised by 43 percent of students, the fund supported 10 students in need of financial assistance with access to the mental health services that they needed. To date, the fund has been fully utilized.

What will funds raised for this priority contribute to?

  • Funds raised for this priority will add to the current service and program to allow more students in need the ability to utilize necessary mental health services.
  • For every $1,000 raised, the fund towards specialized individual mental health service interventions will provide either:
    • 10 out-of-pocket sessions with a specialized provider (not a general therapist practitioner).
    • 50 therapy copays for students with insurance but cannot afford the $20 per session copay.
    • 50 medication copays for students with insurance but cannot afford the $20 per session copay.
    • 1 expensive psychoeducational test that is used to diagnose ADHD/ADD.
  • The fund can also be used to reduce fees/costs for community resources for students who do not have mental health coverage or are worried about their parent’s knowledge of them seeking help, transportation costs to or from providers, and/or co-pays for medication.

Participation Goals

The overall Harvey Mudd student participation goal is 45 percent.

Any dorm that reaches 61 percent participation will receive a taco or pizza party and the class with the highest participation will receive a boba party!
