The State University of New York is going to use $24-million in federal funding to expand student access to mental health services.

The money, which is coming from the American Rescue Plan, will go towards things such as suicide prevention programming, after-hours care, and creating well-being spaces. Campuses in the SUNY system are going to be making investments in physical wellness programs and strengthening peer to peer counseling opportunities.
