Mental Health of College Students


Katherine N. Morrow (Editor)

College students have always been subject to a massive input of stresses. These stresses include inside and outside pressures by the world to succeed, financial worries, concerns about uncertain future, social problems and opportunities since college is often the meeting place for future mates, and homework and tests in multiple and complex subjects requiring preparation and focus with often conflicting priorities. Unsuccessful coping often results in anxiety, heavy drinking, depression and a host of other mental health problems. The ready availability of weapons of all sorts has added a new dimension to the problem. This new book presents new analyses which detail the depth of the issues involved.
