Navigating the challenges of immersion in a world of difference is precisely what fuels the kind of transformative learning that is at the heart of internationalisation – but the flip side is the host of mental health stressors that come with it. This issue of Forum seeks to explore how international higher education can foster health and wellness among students and staff, and how international experiences themselves can be leveraged to facilitate emotional resilience.
