College students need help for anxiety, depression - Oklahoman

As of 2015, according to The New York Times, anxiety and depression among college students is on the rise. According to The Oklahoman, “thousands with mental illness will lose services in Oklahoma” due to budget cuts this year. College students in Oklahoma are going to need help managing their mental illnesses as they enter the workforce. As a college student struggling daily with anxiety, I know how important receiving help for mental illness is. At the end of 2015, according to the OU Daily, 80 percent of college students experienced daily stress, and 13 percent had been diagnosed with a mental health condition such as anxiety or depression. These numbers could rise with the current budget cuts.
