Abstract and Works Cited

Abstract: Anxiety and depression have significantly increased among university students. This increase has been brought about college stressors, as well as societal pressures. Factors that have contributed to this increase include social media, living in the millennial generation, pressure to succeed, increased workload, and even social drinking. To combat this significant increase, colleges are taking action to help their students become more resilient to adverse situations that can cause anxiety and depression. It is important for colleges to control the increase of anxiety and depression in their students because if left unnoticed, students will be inclined to drop out of college-- causing retention rates to decrease. Colleges are using awareness methods, group therapy, and new technologies to assist their students in becoming resilient and being able to face anxiety and depression despite the challenges of having limited resources.
