"Being a student is a time of massive change, pressure, opportunity, and personal development, and student life is full of things that both challenge and boost our mental health,” Chris O’Sullivan, policy development manager for the Mental Health Foundation, told BuzzFeed.
"Between one in four and one in five people will develop a mental health problem at some point in their lives," he said. "The same applies to students. Student life, though, can be challenging, and it's important to recognise that.
"Isolation, change, pressure to succeed, uncertainty about employment prospects, debt, housing problems, and drinking too much can all make it harder to cope and lead to mental health problems. These things can be factors whilst studying."
