Bennett College students voice concerns over lack of in-person mental health resources on campus

There was a sit-in on Bennett College’s campus Tuesday.

Students say they’re not happy with the lack of in-person mental health resources on campus.

The school said it offers virtual counseling, but students feel that information wasn’t made widespread.

President Suzanne Walsh said the college is working to provide an in-person counselor for students. She also agrees the college needs to work to improve its communication when relaying information.

Student Ja’nylah Johnson says they’re giving the college 24 hours to come up with a concrete plan or the sit-in will continue.
