It has been identified that populations of students within Higher Education often report much higher levels of the symptoms of depression than the norm for their age group. In addition, levels of symptoms for anxiety can also be higher amongst students. A study found that reported levels of moderate to severe anxiety among second year students were nearly twice that of the general population (Webb et al 1996). Another later study conducted discovered that students were 1.64 times more likely to experience symptoms of mental ill health than the general population (Harrison et al 1999).
