Within the last decades, there has been rising prevalence of mental health issues in academia (Gonçalves, 2017). A number of studies have been done (e.g., Eisenberg, Downs, Golberstein, & Zivin, 2009; Kitzrow, 2003; Martin, 2010), in order to enhance efforts to prevent and treat mental disorder within higher education. But then, it seems that everything still is in the same place. I feel that it is vital that we also consider the lived experience of students who have mental health issues.
