An immensely accessible introduction to key questions about students' mental health difficulties and what universities can do to support them. It makes excellent use of case studies to illustrate the complex problems that students present, and to question debates that dismiss the real increase in poor mental health amongst this growing population.

Students face a range of challenges at university, from making friends, to finding a home, to managing limited finances before they can even begin to engage with their learning. This important work summarises the struggles students face and the necessary measures and interventions that can be used in the higher education setting to alleviate their impact. Advocating for a whole institution approach, with a focus on individual wellbeing and community welfare, Student Mental Health and Wellbeing in Higher Education is a welcome addition to literature in the field.
