Mental Health Tips for College Students

Posted on August 13, 2013 at 12:08 PM
Healthy Minds: Tips for Every College Student

Did You Know?
· Mental health conditions are most common during the ages of 18-24. In fact, twenty-seven percent of young adults experience mental health conditions, of which anxiety disorders and depression are the two most common disorders.
· Mental illnesses – if left untreated – can derail a young adult’s college career and dismantle many other areas of their life and dreams. With treatment, nearly all people who experience a mental health condition can live normal, productive lives.
· Support is available at school and in the community, and mental health treatments are extraordinarily effective.

What College Students Should Know
· One in four adults experiences a diagnosable mental health disorder each year.
· Without proper mental health treatment, mental health conditions may lead to poor school performance, trouble with the law, strained relationships and even suicide.
· Suicide is the second leading cause of death among college students.
· It’s important that college students familiarize themselves with the signs and symptoms of mental health conditions. If a person feels they or someone they care for needs help, they should not hesitate to ask for help.
· Support is available at school and in the community, and mental health treatments are extraordinarily effective.
· Most colleges provide some free mental health services and can refer students who need longterm treatment to local professionals.
· Mental Health America of Illinois (MHAI) can help students find the help they need.
· To find help or get more information contact RCD at (940) 367-9887 or go to your on campus student counseling center.

Depression and College Students
· Depression affects approximately 10 percent of all American adults each year.
· Depression is a serious mental disorder. It is not a normal part of growing up or a personal weakness.
· Nearly 50% of all college students report feeling so depressed that they have had trouble functioning, and 15% meet the criteria for depression.
· Depression is very treatable: more than 80% get better with treatment. The most common treatments are antidepressant medications, psychotherapy, or preferably, a combination of the two.

Anxiety Disorders and College Students
· Extreme forms of fear, worrying and panic could signal an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders affect more than 40 million American adults each year. 5
· There are a range of anxiety disorders that include panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias and post-traumatic stress disorder.
· If left untreated, an anxiety disorder can interfere with students’ academic, social and personal lives. Fortunately, treatments are effective and often combine medication with specific kinds of psychotherapy.
