International Student Insurance Launches Mental Health Awareness Video

Share Article

International Student Insurance releases a new video designed to help foreign students learn about mental health, including where they can seek treatment and addressing common myths preventing treatment.


The launch of the video is part of an ever growing resource base that International Student Insurance is committed to provide the international education community.

International Student Insurance is proud to announce the launch of its second healthcare video for international students and advisors, covering the difficult topic of mental health. The five minute video targets three critical topics: understanding the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions, dispelling common myths that prevent students from seeking help, and providing direction on where students can turn.

“Mental health disorders affect almost half of all young adults, and for international students studying abroad, it’s a particularly susceptible time.” said Ross Mason, Vice President of International Student Insurance. “They are away from family and friends, experiencing new surroundings and encountering a new culture. Many students don’t understand their symptoms, or are reluctant to seek help. This video goes straight at those problems.”

The launch of the video is part of an ever growing resource base that International Student Insurance is committed to provide the international education community. Through the “Insurance Explained” and “Free School Resources” sections of ISI, schools and students now have a place where they can obtain information, resources and guides on core topics related to international student health and insurance.

“We are committed to providing a range of high quality resources for international educators, with no salesmanship involved - these resources are free for all to use” commented Mr Mason. “Videos are an excellent medium for connecting with students, and as we have seen from the tremendous response to our original healthcare video, international educators need more quality resources to help them guide their students. However, we offer more than just videos - other resources include free online student orientations for schools and organizations, to help their students and participants understand insurance and the healthcare system abroad, and a range of helpful articles and best practice guidelines covering a range of topics.”

The new mental health video is available online, and free to embed on your site. For full details please visit:
