Depression is a serious illness and causes a lot of changes in college students. College is where you figure yourself out and if you can’t even keep yourself together there is no way you can determine what you want to do with your life. Depression is isolating yourself from your best friends for no reason, it’s the everyday self talk of “should I go to class or should I just stay in bed and sleep”. College is the worst time to realize you are going through depression. Depression usually goes hand in hand with anxiety. I have both of these things and they definitely affected my grades last semester.
Not being able to explain the issues to your professors or friends is even harder. They just ask a lot of questions that you don’t have answers too. This article is a really good one! Depression rates for college students are going through the roof now a days and something needs to be fixed about it.
