College students and Mental Health
If you feel that you may be experiencing issues or find yourself concerned for a friend or peer, you're not alone. Mental health concerns are very common among college students today. According to the National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI):
- One in four students have a diagnosable condition
- 40% do not seek help
- 80% feel overwhelmed by their responsibilities
- 50% have become so anxious that they struggled in school
