College is a trying time for most students, but it is important to work to maintain a well balanced mental and emotional state. While collegiate competition can be an overwhelming distraction, good balance in students’ overall lives, and time management, is crucial for them to succeed. Allowing the pressures of academia to overwhelm them can lead students into depression, or even into thoughts that verge on suicidal. Technical programs, such as nursing or engineering, are particularly susceptible and should remember to find a balance in life.
- Stress is an inevitable problem for students who prioritize well being. Rigorous programs could be too much for these students to take in school.
- Almost half of U.S. students went in to counseling services for help. That is a significant figure to be considered by any policy maker.
- Students should make their well being a top priority while in school. That is especially true for those pursuing top degrees like nursing or law.
