40% of Students in Higher Education in Europe Experience Mental Health Issues

🧠 Why write about mental health in higher education?

Young people's mental health and well-being in Europe is a high concern. In Europe, 40% of students experience mental health issues, and approximately one in five struggle with mental disorders. Many students suffer anxiety, depression, and other serious mental health problems. According to Euniwell, in Europe, 25% of the population is affected by mental illness. 18-25-year-old is the most vulnerable age for developing mental health problems. 

Many of these problems can affect day-to-day study activities, progression, success, participation in social life and activities, networking and developing interpersonal skills. They can also continue in adulthood and become an issue in people’s personal and professional lives.
