April 15, 2016 @ 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM
Mental health of its students is a concern for all university campuses. Unfortunately, one population that seems to go unnoticed regarding mental health is that of international students. International student enrollment is at an all-time high with enrollments continuing to increase. So many factors play a role in the success rates of international students but many are unsuccessful due to the number of issues that are faced. This study focused on history and current trends regarding mental health of international students. Approximately 400 students at a regional university in the south were surveyed. Personal interviews were also a part of the data collection. This study pursued the current mental health needs, concerns regarding mental health, awareness of counseling and barriers to seeking counseling services.
