To me, mental health is about our emotional, psychological, social and spiritual well-being. One way that we can all support student mental health is to recognize and acknowledge that the stressors of academic study can have an impact upon student wellness. We all have a role to play in noticing how our students are doing, asking them how they are doing and generally leaving space for them to share or seek the support they need to be well and do their best.
