College Students and Stress

Mary MacCarthy

Many of today's college students are struggling with stress. According to the most recent student health survey at the University of Minnesota, 29.3% of college students report not being able to handle their stress level and 19.3% were diagnosed with depression in the last 12 months. Here's a link to the report: http://www.bhs.umn.edu/surveys/survey-results/2013/UofMTwinCities_CSHSReport_2013.pdf

Developed with input from the Active Minds student group at the University of Minnesota, Glorious Hugs care packages were tweaked to appeal to college students and relieve stress. In addition to the art, poetry, bios, discussion questions and cookies, we added two coloring book pages, 12 colored pencils, blowing bubbles, a toy harmonica or kazoo, and two cute "hugger" stickers.
