After reading this article, I was very surprised to learn how there are many more college students with mental disorders now than there were ten years ago. The article stated that most people who go to counseling sessions are currently taking medications because they have already been diagnosed with some type of mental illness whereas ten years ago people would go to counseling sessions because they had just failed a test or broke up with their boyfriend or girlfriend. I think that there has been a rise in mental illness in college students because students are put under so much stress which makes situations in their life a lot more traumatic such as being placed into a new situation and having to adapt to it, or even dealing with a loss of a loved one. I think that students are also having a very hard time adjusting to the college life, which can be a factor of developing mental disorders. I think that it is sad that these rates have increased as much as they have because that means that my peers might be struggling with this mental disorders.
