The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic on mental health of undergraduate students in New Jersey, cross-sectional study. (2016). & Roane, B. M. (2013). These studies were sorted into five levels by related diagnoses: (1) depression, (2) eating disorders, (3) sleep disorders, (4) compulsive-related disorders/posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and (5) body-focused disorders. The present study revealed that 63.5% of the higher secondary students in Kolkata experience academic stress. The prevalence of major depressive disorders was also reported to be significantly greater in obese male students (28.6%) when compared to overweight (9.5%) and normal weight (10.6%) students. doi: 10.2196/24012. And problems of student mental health have only increased. Further, another limitation of the study is the recruitment of participants from only one university, which limits the generalizability of data (Gaultney, 2010). The participants were 217 undergraduate students, with 178 (82.0%) students providing data during the Winter 2020 term. However, four of five studies had a bias toward female responders (Gaultney, 2010; Petrov et al., 2014; Taylor et al., 2011; Taylor et al., 2013). Online ahead of print. All studies reported a higher prevalence of sleep disorders in association with other major mental health disorders, such as depression, anxiety, and affective disorders. doi: 10.1146/annurev.clinpsy.3.022806.091415. WHO world mental health surveys international college student project: Prevalence and distribution of mental disorders. Students have a host of changes to manage, including making new relationships, living apart from friends and family, acquiring new study skills, and learning to function as independent adults [].Several studies have indeed shown rising levels of anxiety and depression amongst HE students, compared to pre-university levels … Third, we identified a small number of studies, which demonstrates lack of studies in this field. Further, students reported taking over-the-counter, recreational psychoactive and prescription drugs for sleep or wakefulness. Emerging research assessing the mental health implications of COVID-19 has identified a heightened prevalence of moderate-to-severe self-reported depressive and anxious symptomatology among the general public (Wang et al., 2020), reflecting the widespread effects of uncertainty and health-related fears. Their roles and scope of practice are grounded in the provision of person-centered care, establishing therapeutic communication, and fostering interpersonal relationships, which are foundational to successful engagement in this population (Kane, 2015). There were no significant differences in the incidence of all disorders according to gender (Sulkowski et al., 2011). Sussman, S. & Arnett, J. J. Differences in behaviors and self-reported mental health collected during the Winter 2020 term compared to previous terms in the same cohort were modeled using mixed linear models. This study Results: These findings signify that additional studies are needed to provide an accurate description of issues impacting the prevalence of mental health disorders among undergraduate university students in the United States. Control terms include data from the same group of individuals across previous academic terms. Further, there is a need to conduct primary studies to determine the prevalence of schizophrenia-related disorders and ADHD among undergraduate students. The transition from high school to college can be a distressing period (Kadison, 2004) that requires students to develop and exercise greater autonomy with a shift in their roles and expectations. Students were surveyed for engagement in BFRBs, including daily engagement in hair pulling, skin picking, nail biting, cheek biting, teeth grinding while awake, and skin biting. (2013), where weighted prevalence of depression was reported as 30.6% globally, whereas in the current review, prevalence of depression was found to be 22% in the United States.
