We can all agree that the importance of mental health has changed on campus over the past few years, especially after Covid-19. There has always been a stigma surrounding students’ validity and gravity of mental health. Still, this stigma has made progress into becoming an everyday reality as of late.
“During the pandemic, about 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. have reported symptoms of anxiety or depressive disorder, a share that has been largely consistent, up from one in ten adults who reported these symptoms from January to June 2019″.According to kff.org.
This statistic is proof that the pandemic worsened mental health and spurred an advanced need for new awareness surrounding mental health.
