Stress In Students Could Lead To Depression, Self-Harm
from Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
As the first semester comes to an end, stress levels start to increase, said Valerie Cox, a licensed clerical social worker and counselor at South Plains College in Levelland, Texas. This stress students are dealing with can lead to subjects committing self harm such as cutting, burning and even death. According to helpquide.org, people harm themselves because it puts them back in control of the pain or depression they have felt from their surroundings. Cox said stress rate in students usually begins in October. With students being away from home, they want to have that feeling of being independent but sometimes take on too much, she said.
