Heads of university and college counselling services have reported increases in the proportion of 'seriously disturbed' students using these services (Rana et al., 1999). There has also been a growth of additional specialist services within universities and colleges to meet demand from students with mental health difficulties, and to support these students in their academic progression. How can we explain these developments? What contribution can psychology make to improve the teaching and learning environment in higher education? Could psychologists help universities and colleges to respond more effectively to the needs of students with mental health difficulties? To answer these questions it is important to outline the range of issues and experiences that the term 'student mental health' might encompass.
