RESEARCH SUMMARY WORKSHEET STUDENT NAME: Alyssa BregmanRESEARCH TOPIC: First year experience/mental health ARTICLE ONE Wyatt, T. J., Oswalt, S. B., & Ochoa, Y. (2017). Mental Health and Academic Success of First-Year College Students. International Journal of Higher Education,6(3), 178. doi:10.5430/ijhe.v6n3p178 PROBLEM STATEMENTThe primary purpose of the study is to examine differences in mental health diagnoses and their related academic impact with a special focus on classification year in college. This is important because first year students are especially vulnerable to stress, and that can greatly affect their academics. The research questions are how do first-year college students differ in prevalence of depression and anxiety with students in other years of post-secondary school? How do first-year college students differ compared to students in other years of post-secondary school in incidence of self-injury, serious contemplation of suicide or suicide attempt in the last 12 months? How do first-year college students differ in negative academic impact from depression, anxiety and stress compared to students in other years of post-secondary school? The reason for trying to find answers to these questions is that by finding out which year has the most mental health, they can try to find solutions to why it's more prevalent in one group.
