CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — This year’s higher education summit in New Hampshire is exploring the issue of mental health on college campuses.

The summit scheduled Friday in Concord at the Grappone Conference Center is aiming to improve enrollment, encourage New Hampshire high school graduates to choose colleges and universities in the state, and deepen connections with area businesses.
