Critical Mental Health Resources for College Students
With the pressures facing most people today, it is essential to take your mental health seriously. This is especially true for college students and young people whose lack of experience in the real world could lead to major mental health issues resulting from stress, overwork, fatigue, or even the onset of a more serious mental illness. In fact, up to 75% of college students with possible mental health issues do not seek help for what ails them. The most common mental health issues facing college students and young people are Depression, Anxiety, Suicide, Addiction, and Eating Disorders to name a few.
For college students and young people who do not struggle with significant mental health issues, there are still actionable steps to take to relieve stress and anxiety. Some suggestions to think about are physical activity, sleep, diet changes, therapy and counseling, relaxation exercises, and psychiatric care.
