"This time of year is particularly stressful," University of Maine Counseling Center Director, Angela Fileccia, said. Mental health in college students is getting worse, according to a Healthy Minds Study published last year in the Journal of Affective Disorders. A survey of more than 350,000 college students found more than 60 percent had at least one mental health problem during the 2020-2021 school year. That's an increase of nearly 50 percent from 2013.
