Support the Mary Christie Institute Support MCI

The Mary Christie Institute is the inter-institutional epicenter for new ideas and initiatives in college-age behavioral health and is the only think-tank in the country focused specifically on these issues. With 66% of all people between the ages of 18 and 26 attending some form of higher education, the Mary Christie Institute believes that colleges and universities have a significant opportunity, if not a responsibility, to better support the emotional and behavioral health of our next generation of leaders. The need for a national resource like the Mary Christie Institute has never been greater as rates of anxiety, depression, loneliness, and hopelessness continue to rise.

An investment in the Mary Christie Institute represents a commitment to thought leadership in college student mental health and wellbeing, and to improving how schools and communities steward the healthy development of teens and young people of all abilities, backgrounds and resources.
