Getting Through College and Depression
It isn’t easy to go through college without being serious. It is, after all, the milestone that will prepare and take you a step closer to your career or dream work. There will be tremendous pressures - to get good grades, survive relationship issues (with classmates, roommates and girl/boyfriends), and have a stable source of funds. It will be difficult not to be stressed. As you resort to sleeping less, eating poorly and paying less attention to your physical and health needs, you become vulnerable to emotional issues, such as depression.
College Depression Can’t Be Trivialized
Depression is a real threat to the emotional health of college students who are working hard to achieve a life goal. According to Healthline, depression is widespread among American college students with the following statistics: “1 out of every 4 college students suffers from some form of mental illness, including depression and 44 percent of American college students report having symptoms of depression.” Healthline also says that college students with depression are five times more likely to commit self-harm.
College Depression: What is it?
Living away from your family and maybe on your own for the first time, you may succumb to loneliness. You are likely to fill the void with new relationships and work hard to fit in. As you advance through college, you will be faced with other emotional and nerve-wracking issues, such as academic pressures, concerns about money, as well as intimate relationship issues. All these can combine and overwhelm you. If you are predisposed to depression, it can develop at this time when you are most vulnerable.
Are You or Is Your Child Depressed
If you are living on your own, your parents may not come running when you need them because they may not be even aware of your distress or depressive symptoms. Feeling sad or distressed will not be enough to conclude that you are depressed. It will help to know the symptoms of college depression. To be certain it is college depression and to prevent the condition from getting worse, consult a professional for proper diagnosis.
Journeying Towards a Bright Future with Counseling
College is a major life transition. It can impact your life in a most significant way. The symptoms can leave a dent in your person for life.
