International students and mental health: Research Brief 02

Research output: Other contributionOther


This brief provides an overview of literature relating to the mental health of international students from the past two decades. Research has found that both the rate and severity of mental health concerns is higher for international students compared to domestic students. Despite this, rates of detection and intervention remain low. Effective support and treatment to adequately address the specific mental health needs of international students is currently hindered by a range of
structural, social, and cultural factors.
