Review:

“A wise and highly readable guide for parents and their college–age students to developmental and mental health issues that confront college students and worry their loving parents, by the director of one of the nation’s leading college mental health services. Kadison’s words will help parents talk with their sons and daughters about difficult subjects, and they will help students develop courage to accept help for themselves.”
––Elizabeth Studley Nathans, dean of freshman, Harvard College

“Dr. Kadison’s twenty–five years of experience in working with students puts him in an ideal position to educate parents and advise them on the important issues in college mental health. He has done an excellent job in exploring these issues for the parents of college students.”
––Lorraine Siggins, M.D., psychiatrist–in–chief, Yale University Health Service; clinical professor of psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine

“Richard Kadison has created an extraordinary book. It is thoroughly grounded in evidence and data about college mental health, as well as in Kadison’s extensive experience working with college students. His conversational writing style and use of case examples make the text come alive. All of his audiences—students, parents, and administrators—will get thoughtful and actionable insights form this powerful work.”
––Patricia Light, Ed.D., director, MBA Support Services, Harvard Business School

From the Back Cover:

  • THE CAMPUS MENTAL
  • HEALTH CRISIS AND
  • WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT

FROM THE FOREMOST LEADER IN THE FIELD

An Action Plan for Confronting the SeriousPsychological Crisis Among Students

"Kadison, chief of mental health services at Harvard, and DiGeronimo are deeply concerned about the marked growth in serious mental health problems on campus: they note statistics showing that almost half of all students will become seriously depressed during their college career and may engage repeatedly in binge drinking. . . . Kadison and DiGeronimo do a commendable job of outlining the many stresses students face, such as academic pressure, financial problems, feelings of social inadequacy and, for women, a fear of sexual assault. In a stark chapter, the authors outline the self-destructive coping mechanisms adopted by those with emotional problems, including eating disorders, drug abuse, cutting, and suicide attempts. Parents will find sensible suggestions for helping their children deal with college life. Most important, say the authors, is keeping the lines of communication open by listening to children without judgment or criticism. Parents, college counselors and administrators, and students themselves (to whom the last chapter is addressed) will find helpful, if sometimes disturbing, information here." --Publishers Weekly

"A wise and highly readable guide."
--Elizabeth Studley Nathans, dean of freshman, Harvard College
