Such concerns area unit related to educational performance and lower graduation rates that usually affects the health and educational performance of scholars. Literature Review Mental health amongst university and college students represents an important and growing public health apprehension for which epidemiological information are desired. A Web-based survey was administered to a random trial at a large public university with a demographic contour similar to the national student residents. Depressive and anxiety disorders were measured with the Patient Health Questionnaire (R. L. Spitzer, J. B. W. Williams, K. Kroenke & the Patient Health Questionnaire Primary Care Study Group, 1998). Nonresponse weights were made with administrative data and a brief non-respondent survey activity. The response rate was 57.6% (N 2,543). The estimated occurrence of any anxiety or depressive disorder was 15.8% for undergraduates and 14.0% for graduate students. Suicidal ideation in the past four weeks was reported by 3% of scholars.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
