April 22, 2021
First-year college students are reporting symptoms of depression and anxiety significantly more often than they were before the coronavirus pandemic, according to a study by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The study is based on the experiences of 419 Carolina students, and reflects the challenge faced by colleges nationwide to support student well-being. Researchers from the Carolina Population Center and the UNC School of Medicine published the study findings March 3 in PLOS ONE.
The research was recently discussed on the podcast Carolina Connection by reporter Jayda Williams.
