Drawing on the experience of college counseling center directors, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, researchers, attorneys, and educators from across the country, Mental Health Care in the College Community is a beautifully organized resource that is encyclopedic in its scope and detail. It offers administrators the why and how-to of creating state-of-the-art services that include crisis intervention, triage, psychotherapy, medication consultation, testing, referral, outreach, working with parents, and training psychiatry residents and psychology and social work interns. The authors are attuned to the specific needs of the college environment, among the most pressing of which is timeliness. College students are constrained by academic deadlines that can make or break their educational and career goals, and those stresses correspondingly exacerbate or incite mental health symptoms. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students, and the authors offer triage and crisis intervention approaches that have been shown to reduce completed suicides on several college campuses. Likewise, appropriate triage eliminates the need for the dreaded “waiting list,” an unfortunate staple of many college counseling services. In addition to citing research findings that could be used to justify the need for services, Mental Health Care in the College Community offers a sample triage form, guidelines for working with suicidal students, suggestions for responding to traumatic incidents that affect large numbers of students, such as a public suicide, and case examples, among other concrete resources.
