I am delighted to see this up to date review of data, research and practical guidance pulled together in an easy to read book for HE professionals. I found it a good reminder of the need to offer culturally competent support systems, to consider cultural bereavement and the psychological impact of transition on the student when planning support services.

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.

There is growing concern about the mental well-being of students and other young people. This book brings together experts in this field to give a comprehensive account of the relevant issues. It will be invaluable to anyone involved in the care and treatment of mentally-troubled students.

-- John Callender

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.
