Shelves: library, psych-ish
The book covered general problems that some college students have. I haven't learned anything new, but that's probably because I'm a 4th year psych student. In my own opinion, the book vaguely describes why college students are overwhelmed, but I expected more than what was given. I expected more scientific studies to be cited, and less of a general overview. Instead, the authors talked about basic symptoms of mental disorders.

The book honestly sounds like someone at a tablesit or orientation is

An excellent book to describe the many mental health issues faced by today's college students. It's written to be very accessible, even to those without a lot of prior knowledge of mental health issues. I'd recommend it for anyone who works with college students, and even parents concerned about their students.

Mr. Kadison presents research in a conversational manner, making this book a recommended read for educators, parents, and students alike. There is a chapter for parents and a chapter for students at the end of the book addressing each group uniquely.

Shelves: highereducation
Used it for a research paper...hard to just read cover-to-cover but has much useful information for those interested in counseling, and college students specifically.
Such an important issue. I was trying to become educated! Recommended at a Big 10 Conference for leaders in higher administration.
