Mental Health and Young People

The number of college students seeking mental health counseling has risen considerably in recent years. About 2,500 students sought help at the USF Counseling Center last year. That represents a 50 percent increase since 2001. And, a recent Stetson University study indicates all of Florida's universities are having a hard time keeping up with the demand for mental health services.
