Life on Campus
Mental health issues are on the rise on college campuses across the country. Better and accessible screening as well as earlier diagnosis of mental health conditions are critical to getting quality treatment and improving one's quality of life. This has allowed more students with mental health conditions to go on to college and be successful.
Living in a new environment outside the familiarity of home can create overwhelming and stressful circumstances.
