More College Students Seeking Mental Health Care
Posted on Oct 25 2018
College students in the U.S. are showing higher rates of diagnosis for a range of mental health conditions, suggests a new study in the Journal of American College Health. Using a national American College Health Association dataset of over 450,000 undergraduate students, researchers investigated whether mental health diagnoses and treatment among students changed between 2009 and 2015. They found that treatment and diagnoses of anxiety increased by nearly 6 percent, followed by depression and panic attacks, which each increased about 3 percent.
