Increasing numbers of students seek support for psychological problems, as documented by university counseling center directors in the United States (Gallagher, 2014) and university mental health service providers in Europe (Ruckert, 2015). It is also well understood that in order to learn effectively students must be ready to learn, and that such readiness requires mental and emotional health. Minerva is building its counseling and wellness services from scratch, and here we discuss the ways that Minerva provides fertile ground to combine known best practices with innovative approaches to student support and wellbeing. This chapter describes the unique opportunities and challenges presented by Minerva’s diverse student population and global immersion experience with respect to student mental health and wellbeing.
