There is a rich body of research on the impact of common mental health difficulties such as depression and anxiety. These concepts, formalised by Western-developed diagnostic frameworks, may be less relevant in non-Westernised cultures. Although depression and anxiety may be presented, they can be presented in different ways in non-English speaking populations. Cultural adaptation of interventions has therefore been advocated to enhance engagement and recovery. This thesis focuses on the mental health presentation and support of Chinese-speaking international students with low mood or anxiety. It aims to explore how they might present with symptoms of depression, how they would like to work/engage in treatment, modify and then test the feasibility of delivering an online life skills package aimed at such students as well as bringing together the evidence base around such interventions through a systematic review.
