Chegg, Inc. has partnered with esteemed non-profits and organisations from around the world for Global Student Mental Health Week, taking place February 26 - March 3.

Student Mental Health Week is a global initiative that seeks to destigmatise mental health among students, encourage young people to be intentional about looking after themselves, and inspire conversations around what policymakers, education institutions, the wider community, caregivers, and learners themselves can do to support student mental wellness.

The non-profits and organisations from around the world that Chegg has partnered with for this year’s Student Mental Health Week include Active Minds, the Ayrton Senna Institute, Born This Way Foundation, Calm, Inspiring Children Foundation, The Jed Foundation (JED), the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the Nivishe Foundation, Ontario Undergraduate Student Alliance, ONYX Mental Health Family, Orygen, "Seize the Awkward" from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and JED with the Ad Council, Student Minds, the Varkey Foundation and Young Invincibles.

Activities kicking off during the week of February 26-March 3, 2024:

  • Chegg will bring together the mental health resources from these collaborative partners, including simple tips to improve mental wellness, under a centralised online resource and signpost the support available to its millions of students worldwide, via the Student Mental Health Week website.
  • Student Mental Health Week will encompass a variety of in-person and digital events involving students to inform debate and help educate policymakers, educational institutions, and communities on the mental health challenges students face.
  • Chegg will work with students around the world to find opportunities to have their voices heard by elite decision-makers and influencers. This will include meetings on Capitol Hill with lawmakers and officials from the U.S. Department for Education in partnership with Young Invincibles.
  • Finalists of the $100,000 Global Student Prize and the Varkey Foundation's $1 million Global Teacher Prize will be asked to share how they look after their mental wellness, which resources they turn to for support, facts about student mental health in their country, and projects they are involved with on the ground.
  • Chegg’s Center for Digital Learning will launch a white paper based on global research on the mental health of students around the world.
  • Calm, a Chegg partner and the world’s number one app for sleep, meditation and relaxation, will curate a collection of guided meditations for anxiety and stress for students.
