Depression and Addiction are peaking among College Students

“Half of the students in fall 2020 screened positive for depression and/or anxiety,” says Sarah Ketchen Lipson, a Boston University mental health researcher and a co-principal investigator of the nationwide survey. As one can argue, depression and addiction are continuously on the rise for college students. Whether it is due to the remote learning environment, lack of online mental health resources, rehabilitation not being able to reach them, and more, this issue needs to be addressed immediately. Let’s start with mental health marketing


What Can Teachers and School Administrators do to Help?  

Lipson, a university assistant professor of health law, policy, and management, says the multiple surveys’ findings underscore the need for university teaching staff and faculty to put mechanisms in place that can accommodate students’ mental health needs. In fact, teachers and faculties should be more involved in assisting students during these unprecedented times. 

One of the actions that teachers can do to help is to be more flexible with deadlines and reminding students that they are not defined by their ability to get a top grade during these challenging semesters. Reassuring the students’ feelings and actions during this time is crucial to stay healthy. Furthermore, encouraging students to go to bed earlier and get valuable sleep is always needed. 

On a higher level within colleges and universities, administrators should focus on providing and improving mental health resources that prioritize drug addiction prevention, coping, and resilience. One of the suggestions from our experts at Reputation Rehab is to organize weekly assemblies or gatherings to share with students about resources, tips and tricks, hacks, and more on how to manage early symptoms of depression and addiction. One could argue that this is an effective prevention method for students to stay informed and manage their symptoms before they get more out of control.
