April 26, 2021

Some college students have experienced difficulty adjusting to life during the COVID-19 pandemic, facing elevated rates of stress and/or anxiety. “During June 24–30, 2020, U.S. adults reported considerably elevated adverse mental health conditions associated with COVID-19,” according to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Young adults were among those that experienced negative mental health outcomes. At the same time, university counseling center utilization saw a 32% average decrease, according to a study conducted across 63 institutions by Penn State University’s Center for Collegiate Mental Health, but attributes the drop to students leaving campus.
