This chapter focuses on higher education as another important social determinant of mental health. With pervasive stigma and neglect from universities and colleges, students experiencing mental health issues have been ignored or denied the support they need to be successful in their studies and complete their degree programs. The chapter reviews research on this problem, outlines the values of the supported education approach, and examines research that shows how this approach has been shown to be successful. It also analyzes institutional barriers to supported education and calls for a new paradigm to promote higher education as a social determinant of mental health.
