international students, mental health, well-being


The goal of this research study is to explore what are perceptions of mental health and well-being among international students and to identify ways to improve access to mental health services for them. A total of 26 individuals participated in the quantitative research by completing an anonymous Microsoft online survey posted on LinkedIn, a social media platform. The findings revealed how international students perceive mental health and well-being and how they access support services related to it. Similar to past research, this study found that a majority of international students agree that they are reluctant to seek mental health support.
