Mental HealthTrends As of this report, CCMH has generated seven annual data sets (2010-2011 through 2016-2017) making it possible to examine trends among college students seeking mental health services. To examine trends across key mental health indicators, the following items from the Mental Health History section of the Standardized Data Set (SDS) were simplified to “Yes” or “No,” providing a proxy for the lifetime prevalence of each item. These items may have changed slightly over time; please refer to prior versions of the SDS for specifics. Data sets The first table below summarizes the number of contributing institutions and students represented in each of the past seven data sets. Please note that the “# of Clients” represents the total amount of data contributed to CCMH by participating counseling centers. This information should not be used to examine questions about increasing demand as the exact number and mix of centers contributing data will change from year to year.
