A nationwide survey of more than 1,200 college students by TimelyMD, the leading virtual health and well-being provider in higher education, shows sustained high levels of mental health challenges – and awareness – as students begin the spring semester. Key findings include: Seven out of 10 (71%) of students are experiencing mental health issues such as stress, anxiety and/or depression; more than three-quarters (78%) report the same or higher levels of severity as this time last year; students’ top five stressors are their own mental health (50%), followed by personal finances (39%), academics (37%), mass shootings (35%) and inflation/rising prices (35%).
