I conducted a small study interviewing some of my friends for this information and also including information from myself. I also researched this information from many helpful websites. My study is on how college students experience depression.
“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. College depression isn’t a clinical diagnosis. Instead, college depression is depression that begins during college.” (http://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/tween-and-teen-health/in-depth/college-depression/art-20048327)
If not every, I can say that many college students have experienced depression at least once. Depression in college students is something that is often overlooked. Many people believe that college students just like to party. However, partying can be another way someone is dealing with their depression, by drinking or doing drugs.
Many college students experience depression because college can become very overwhelming. A lot of us including myself, are often sleep deprived. We lack poor diets and we sure as hell do not exercise enough. With all of these factors combined, it’s no wonder why we are depressed.
