The knowledge of health-seeking behaviour and health problems of students in university residences is too limited and social factors are rarely considered while treating medical ailments of the students. The book presents findings of the impact of student welfare on the mental health of students at the University of Nairobi. Through the study and analysis of the social, economic, and academic environment of the students in a public university key findings have been documented in a descriptive nature using both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Undergraduate student who reside in the university halls were found to be affected by their environment. Much more needs to be done in terms of policy decisions and implementation. The book provides insight to students of mental health, institutional and government policy makers.
