Mental illnesses are invisible illnesses that can affect anyone. As a college student, you feel a unique set of stressors and those, in turn, can influence your mental health or aggravate a preexisting condition. If you are dealing with anxiety, depression or suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorder, or an eating disorder, talk to a mental health specialist. They will help you understand that you’ve done nothing wrong to have one of these diseases and work with you to create a treatment plan to combat your illness. All are treatable.
