There is growing international concern with the increasing prevalence and severity of mental health problems experienced by university students. The reluctance to seek professional support, the high level of disability associated with psychological distress, the limited on-campus treatment options, and the cost of non intervention all provide strong rationales for considering the broader context of student wellbeing. Mental health and wellbeing results from an interaction of biological, psychological, and social factors. As the primary part of a university student’s psychological and social experience for a number of years, most frequently at a critical developmental period of young adulthood, the entirety of the university environment influences health and wellbeing.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
