Why Students Are Facing Psychological Problems

Young adults, especially college students (aged 18-24), are the most common group of people to struggle from emotional wellness issues. Anxiety and depression are most common.

Emotional wellness issues have always been prelevant in our society, but since approximately a decade or so ago, there has been a significant increase in numbers.

Students have to balance many parts of their life - academics, athletics, work, relationships - to ensure success throughout college. Sometimes, this balance can have significant impacts on sleep patterns, stress levels, nutrition, and much more.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, over 40 million young adults experience anxiety. Within that number, 75% experience it by age 22 or in college.

One of the best way to protect your mental health against the symptoms of college-related stress is to establish a healthy academic-life balance. It’s important to make sure you’re getting enough sleep, eating properly, exercising, and doing something that makes you happy.
