All Kinds of News for December 04, 2019
Red Mountain Sedona, the mindfulness-based young adult program in Arizona, now offers students the opportunity to take up to six-credit hours of college courses per semester for free, beginning January 2020. Though many Red Mountain students already take classes, next semester students will be able to enroll without having to pay extra college tuition. This tuition benefit applies to students attending Yavapai College—Verde Valley, and is available for any Red Mountain Student who is eligible to enroll in school.
Yavapai College is an accredited, four-year institution that offers dozens of degree and certificate programs, across six schools of study including: Arts & Humanities, Business & Computer Systems, Social Sciences, Health & Wellness, Career & Technical Education and Science & Engineering. The small class sizes, tutoring and accommodations from the Yavapai College Student Services department, paired with support from Red Mountain’s Master’s-Level Academic Advisor, means that Red Mountain students are able to have a corrective academic experience and move toward college completion or vocation certification.
Across the nation, young adults are struggling in higher education. In the 2018 Annual Report from the Center for Collegiate Mental Health, nearly 40% of college students receiving mental health services seriously considered attempting suicide. What’s more, instances of medical withdrawal for mental health reasons, substance use, school avoidance and academic underachievement are on the rise in post-secondary programs. For these students, withdrawing from school can further exacerbate their mental health concerns and substance use issues.
The Red Mountain Sedona program helps students address their mental health challenges, while simultaneously helping them regain their academic momentum. With college tuition at Yavapai-Verde Valley, now being included in the Red Mountain tuition, students can have the mental health support they need to move forward with their academic goals without incurring additional tuition expenses.
