I wonder if part of the reason so many young people get diagnosed with mental disorders in college is because that’s the only time they get access to mental health care without their parents telling them they’re making it up
Well well well…
Also colleges tend to provide free therapy to those who need it. And that is helpful.
YES, and also because a lot people don’t want their parents to know what’s going on. Even though I was aware I needed help in high school, I was terrified of telling my parents how I felt because it’s difficult to be like, “LOL HEY MOM I WANT TO TAKE MY OWN LIFE”, and I worked really hard to hide how I felt. Even though my parents have been loving and supportive 4ever, I don’t share personal things with them because it would stress them out (and also because they don’t have enough experience with the issues I have to understand).
