Addressing these challenges requires a holistic approach that includes building support networks, connecting with like-minded individuals, seeking help from mental health professionals, and establishing comprehensive support systems.</span></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Mental health practitioners often utilize empathy to understand the challenges faced by others. However, to truly comprehend the day-to-day lives of students who move abroad for studies, we need to create a detailed picture of their experiences. This includes examining the mental, emotional, social, physical, economic, academic, and political aspects of their lives, as well as the process of acculturation and the challenges they face while adjusting to a new environment.</span></p> <p><strong>Submission Process:</strong></p> <p><span style="font-weight: 400;">Manuscripts should be submitted through the Journal of International Students' online submission system.
