Mental health of students 'at risk'30th September 2011
The Royal College of Psychiatrists has warned that the current generation of students is at a greater risk of anxiety and depression than previous ones.
Some of the factors behind this include the rising number of students who are coming from less privileged backgrounds who are less prepared for university life and also increasing debt and uncertainty over job prospects. The RCP has also expressed concerns that universities may see counselling and support services as an easy target for cuts under the current economic climate.
