College Students Tell us About Their Mental Health Struggles

Mental health issues, anxiety and depression are all things more and more people are suffering with every day. It is not only limited to older people with busy stressful jobs. There are also millions of students all over the globe struggling each day with their fight against these conditions.

Too often these people hide away and don’t let others know of their struggle. They don’t want to worry or bother other people with their problems as everyone else also has problems of their own. The following video was compiled by Leeds University in the UK to show some real life cases of students going through these issues. It is so positive to see people opening up and sharing their experiences with each other.
