From Oct. 27:
Today college students across the U.S. are battling depression at a record rate. In fact, the American College Counseling Association has noticed a steady increase of students reporting struggling with their mental health. According to a 2013 American Psychological Association survey, about one-third of college students have experienced depression within the past year and had difficulty functioning because of it. Although depression affects people differently, there are a few common signs to watch out for. The National Institute of Mental Health lists persistent sadness, fatigue, irritability, problems sleeping and trouble focusing as major indicators.
