Students transitioning into college have unique and complex mental health needs. Until recently, college campuses failed to meet these needs, leaving students vulnerable to succumb to serious mental illnesses, with dire consequences. This chapter reviews the demographics, diversity, and vulnerabilities of the college-bound or college-enrolled student. A brief history of college counseling centers and the application of privacy laws to education and medical records are reviewed. System failures at Virginia Tech that contributed to the tragedy there are also covered.
