Mental Health Awareness for International Students

Almost half of young adults have had a mental health disorder in their lives, according to this video. If you are struggling, you are not alone. College can be a particularly susceptible time, and studying abroad, away from home in a new culture can be even more stressful.

Our friends at International Student Health Insurance have created this helpful video to outline the signs of mental health problems and ways to seek treatment, as well as dispel some myths around mental health issues. There are many resources on college campuses where students can turn if you are feeling overwhelmed or depressed. Know that seeking mental health care demonstrates that you are motivated, self-aware, and empowered. While at school, your health is of paramount importance. Watch the video to learn more!

This short video introduces the concepts of mental health for international students in the US. Covering mental health awareness and warning signs, dispelling myths, and showing ways to seek treatment, the video seeks to demystify a complex topic.
