The infographic provided, “Managing The College Stress Epidemic” offers a comprehensive overview of stress in the college and university environment. It covers symptoms, triggers, and available treatment options, making it essential reading for college students, incoming freshmen, and parents.

Recognizing the widespread prevalence of stress, many academic institutions provide a variety of preventive and treatment measures, such as counseling, courses, and therapy programs.

Apart from institutional support, students can take simple steps to alleviate stress. Prioritizing sufficient sleep, for example, significantly reduces stress, a practice often overlooked by many college students. Balancing sleep, exercise, and a healthy diet not only eases stress but also contributes to overall physical well-being— factors that can ultimately determine the line between academic failure and success.
