<jats:p> This study aimed to explore university students' understandings of mental health issues, mental health labels, and their attitudes towards these concepts. Five participants (four women aged 18–20, and one 24-year-old man) discussed in a focus group aspects of their childhood that they considered had affected their attitudes towards mental health and labelling. The three themes produced by inductive thematic analysis were ‘the language and context of labelling’, ‘stereotypes and social stigma’, and ‘personal experiences’. Findings have important implications for school nurses who work in primary schools, and who need to be aware of language use. </jats:p>
