This excellent book is thoroughly grounded in evidence on the mounting
college mental health crisis. It deserves praise for readably and understandably
describing the crisis and for offering hope in facing, correcting, and preventing
students’ mental health problems.
Authors Richard Kadison, MD, chief of the Mental Health Service at Harvard
University Health Services, and Theresa DiGeronimo, MEd, author of several
books on education and parenting, bring extensive experience. Their hands-on
guide is addressed to parents, administrators, college health services staff,
and students. The authors intend their book to open a dialogue and and to
suggest ways to face facts and do something about them.
