Anthony Fauci, Reaching Out to Help

February 27, 2020 | Alumni, Alumni Achievement

Anxiety is a condition that hinders student success—there’s no doubt about that! In a Fall 2018 survey, close to 20% of community college students self-reported that they suffered from anxiety, and in March 2019, CUNY’s CHASE (CUNY Health for Academic Success & Engagement) initiative identified student mental health as its top priority. At Guttman we know we lose students to mental health issues, and that upsets us because we can provide treatment here free of charge.  In the last 3 years, 12-14% of the Guttman student body has sought counseling sessions at the college’s Wellness Center, a percentage slightly ahead of the national average.  That’s good news, but there are so many additional students who can benefit. What we need are student champions of mental health and wellness. Students who are courageous enough to come forward to help defeat the stigma of seeking help.  Anthony Fauci, class of 2018, is such a hero. A student in Guttman’s inaugural class in 2012, his success was derailed for a time by anxiety.
