For some, higher education is a time of learning and growth. But it’s also a time of stress as students manage assignments, extracurriculars and their lives and relationships outside the classroom. Mental health is also part of the picture; about 1 in 5 Americans age 18 or older are dealing with a mental health condition, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
