The report noted that, while there are support services available, they often need to be tailored to meet the specific needs of international students who may be dealing with factors such as language barriers and cultural differences. These existing services are also often difficult for international students to access due to their busy study and work schedules.
As such, it is paramount that targeted mental health initiatives specifically designed for the needs of international students be implemented across Australia to reduce the alarming number of global student deaths by suicide. Such initiatives should include better access to mental health services, culturally sensitive support, and increased awareness of available resources.
Australia must take the necessary steps to ensure the well-being of its international students and make sure they have access to comprehensive mental health care. Only through collective action can we prevent further tragedies and create a more supportive environment for all international students in Australia.
