Anxiety Increasing Among College Students

Anxiety in College Students

Anxiety is on the rise among college students, both in terms of the number and percent of college students with anxiety as well as the intensity of anxiety these young adults are experiencing. According to a recent New York Times article:
1) Anxiety has now surpassed depression as the most common mental health diagnosis among college students.
2) More than half of students visiting campus clinics cite anxiety as a health concern.
3) Nearly one in six college students has been diagnosed with or treated for anxiety within the last 12 months/
4) The causes range widely from mounting academic pressure at earlier ages to overprotective parents to compulsive engagement with social media.
5) Many college students don’t have the resilience of previous generations. They can’t tolerate discomfort or having to struggle. A primary symptom is worrying, and they don’t have the ability to soothe themselves.
