Background: Mental health issues continue to be a source of concern word wide, as the prevalence of such issues is on the rise. College/university students account for a substantial percentage of the individuals experiencing the effects of negative mental health and reduced overall well-being. College is a time that consists of many experiences and potential changes that may influence the well-being of the students if not properly addressed. Such changes have the potential to have consequences on various factors, such as academic performance, social behaviors, etc. The influence of these aspects also have the potential to lead to a reduction in mental health.

Goal of our research: Given the reports of increasing mental health issues, specifically among college students, our research seeks to investigate various factors and behaviors that may be associated with the negative mental health reported among this population.

It is our hope that such research will provide insight into the potential variables that may be contributing to the observed decline in mental health, specifically among college students. Additionally, this research may aid universities and counseling centers in better addressing the mental health issues observed in the students they serve.
