The aim of the current study is threefold. First, we assess the prevalence of mental health problems in a representative sample of PhD students in Flanders, Belgium. Second, we compare PhD students to three other samples:

  1. highly educated in the general population
  2. highly educated employees
  3. higher education students.

Third, we assess those organisational factors relating to the role of PhD students that predict mental health status.
