Mental health service provision, service utilization and supervision are hinged on mental health literacy in the effort to promote mental health wellbeing of an individual or a given community. This article examines the facets of university mental health wellbeing and the loopholes in the annual status reports of the National Council for Higher Education in Uganda that neglect the aspect of the institutions' mental health. Mental health literacy level is suggested as a central variable that may explain why evidence of campus mental health status is ignored. The article reiterates the need to report campus mental health status as an avenue to promote mental literacy on university campuses and for the general public in order to enhance mental health wellbeing.
