Abstract: Associations between psychosocial variables and help-seeking intention among college students have often been examined, with inconclusive and sometimes conflicting findings. To consolidate the available research, data from 18 eligible studies comprising a total of 6,839 participants were pooled and meta-analyzed. Attitudes toward seeking professional psychological help and anticipated utility demonstrated the strongest correlations with help-seeking intention. Practice implications are discussed, including the importance of psychoeducation on the effectiveness of evidence-based intervention to motivate professional help-seeking.
