As the number of college students increases, so too does community concern about them. Their apathy, their protests, their health, their morals, their intellectual calibre— all are observed, criticized, occasionally praised. While most of the commentators have done little careful observation and made few efforts to help the students, a few physicians in university health services have worked directly with disturbed students, learning to understand their problems and to help find a solution. One of the most distinguished physicians in this field is Dana Farnsworth, of Harvard. It is not surprising that he was invited to give the 1964 Salmon lectures, of which this book is an expanded version.

Dr. Farnsworth addresses himself not to psychiatrists alone, but to educators, counselors, and all interested in the welfare of students. He stresses the importance, not only to the student or the college, but to the whole community, of helping disturbed students
