3. Hope for College Students

The American Psychiatric Association reported that over 30% of college students were receiving treatments for mental health conditions in 2017, compared to under 20% of students in 2007. Some universities are going online to reach out to students who may not seek traditional therapy. A 2019 Clinical Edge study found that an internet-based, therapist-guided intervention correlates with a 36% decrease in depression symptoms and a 41% drop in anxiety symptoms among students.
