American college students are facing an unprecedented mental health crisis. Three in five (60%) college students reported being diagnosed with a mental health condition by a professional, the most common afflictions being anxiety and depression, according to an exclusive Fortune survey of 1,000 college students conducted by The Harris Poll in June. That’s significantly higher than the general population, only about 48% of whom say they’ve been diagnosed with a mental health condition.
