Students’ Mental Health

VU International News and Reviews No. 123 November 03 2018

November 2018

A report by the American Psychiatric Association shows that between 2007 and 2017, the rate of treatment and diagnosis for mental health problems among students almost doubled from 19% to 34%. The report suggests that the rise is in part because more students have these problems and in part to the fact that fewer are reluctant to come forward with such issues.

The study drew on ten years of data from the Healthy Minds Study, an annual Web-based survey, with a sample comprising 155,026 students from 196 campuses.
