Psychiatric and public health advances of the past several decades in both recognition and treatment of childhood disorders have resulted in a marked increase in the number of matriculating college students either requiring continued mental health care or seeking care for the first time during their college years. The resulting demand for services on campuses across the country spurred not only new directions in clinical service development, but a growing scholarly interest in the developmental and treatment needs unique to this age group. Jerald Kay and Victor Schwartz have assembled a comprehensive text that, in the course of 17 chapters, introduces the work of authors from college health services across the country and in the United Kingdom in response to this need.
