Abstract

Studies have shown that mental health is becoming a more relevant problem in universities today. This does not mean that students did not have mental health issues in the past rather, they were not considered a serious problem that the university must deal with. Over the 20th and 21st century however, there were many more efforts made to help students to recognize that mental health issues are treatable, and that there are strategies that could be used by the university to help manage these students. As more and more studies have been conducted on college students throughout the years, there is apparent correlation between student’s development and habits in college and their mental health. There is significance in puberty and how the changing of the brain chemistry in teens alone can change their mental well-being. Moreover, their choices when it comes to alcohol and drugs can further this development of poor mental health. Evidence also suggests that the changing of reliability on parents to strictly relying on themselves can further develop poor feelings towards oneself. The transition to college comes with many changes, including ones not directly involved with the college. Highlighting all the different aspects of a college transition helps to uncover what is going on within the mind of a student, and what can be done to help. Mental health now more than ever is an important issue that is becoming more relevant and more important. This leads to studies such as this, aiming to help students recognize that they need help, as well as hoping the college will do more to help these students.
