    Overall, I really liked this book, and see its greatest utility when used by parents whose collegiate children experience mental health issues. If I had the funds, or was able to get a grant, I'd buy these in bulk for my staff to give to the parents of students who were willing to have parents involved in the treatment process. My concern with higher ed how-to-books is that there is seldom a one size fits all solution.

If I had the funds, or was able to get a grant, I'd buy these in bulk for my staff to give to the parents of students who were willing to have parents involved in the treatment process. My concern with higher ed how-to-books is that there is seldom a one size fits all solution. Not all campuses are created equal, and whether it's counseling, psychiatry, primary care, substance misuse prevention, sexual violence prevention, etc., the level of services available, even among 4 year campuses, largely varies. Adding 2-year, private institutions, etc adds to the range of the spectrum. Morris does a good job of attempting to address this, and encourages families to research what their students' institution really has. I suspect some family members would be disappointed, if not outraged, how little mental health and psychiatry services some campuses have. Having said this, I did like the book, and it has given me pause to consider some family oriented content and educational offerings my staff and I should consider.

    The Campus Cure is an informative book for parents on how to support your college-age child through the labyrinth of pitfalls that may befall them. The book divides these situations into three main categories; Problems, Pressures, and Crises. The Problems section covers things like Anxiety, Depression, Substance Abuse, and Academic Hiccups. The Pressures section covers such things as Loneliness, Perfectionism, Culture, Sexuality, Gender Challenges, and Financial Stresses. Crises are things like Rap The Campus Cure is an informative book for parents on how to support your college-age child through the labyrinth of pitfalls that may befall them.

The Pressures section covers such things as Loneliness, Perfectionism, Culture, Sexuality, Gender Challenges, and Financial Stresses. Crises are things like Rape, Suicidal Behaviors, Eating Disorders, and Psychosis. Written by someone that is both a Psychiatrist and a Mother of two college-age people, this is a thorough and thoughtful account of things that can happen and how to reasonably deal with these issues without stepping on your now adult child’s toes. Even if you are an hour’s drive away, this person on the other end of a phone call is your child, breaking that tether is one of the most difficult things to do. Like if your child believes that they are having a heart attack from the sheer amount of anxiety they are going through. The book gives tons of good advice for all of these things.

    I found Dr. Marcia Morris's book to be extremely educational. As a young parent, and a grad student, I personally found The Campus Cure to be relatable to some of the experiences I faced while in my earlier years of college. In this aspect, it helped me understand that I was not alone; as well as offered tactics for how to better handle myself if I'm ever in a similar situation again. On a parenting level, I felt the book offered guidance in helping define my parenting style early on and was hel I found Dr. Marcia Morris's book to be extremely educational.

On a parenting level, I felt the book offered guidance in helping define my parenting style early on and was helpful in a way that will allow me to better prepare for when my children are a little older. While a lot of the chapters focus on helping your child's mental health and wellness in the college-age years, you will find her professional advice to be recommendations that you can apply to really any friend, family or peer. Overall - easy, helpful read with lots of research to back her points and interesting patient stories that are relatable both as a parent and/or student.
