Introducing the college Spill

Mental health issues affect everyone, but some populations are more vulnerable than others.

Most people might not think that college students rank high up there on that list, but they would be wrong. College is a vulnerable time for many teens and young adults, especially since many students are leaving home for the first time. Young adulthood is also a prime time that personality development is solidifying — and when most people are involved in their first serious, mature romantic relationship. Add academic demands onto the pile, and you have a recipe ripe for stress and mental health issues.

That’s why we’re pleased to introduce The College Spill with Meredith Bazirgan, MSW, LCSW. She is a licensed social worker who lives in Boston, MA. Meredith is the director of outreach for Spill, a free, online peer to peer support network for college students that is both private and confidential.

Meredith will be blogging about what college and university students go through in campus life, and how to manage the many stresses — as well as fun aspects — of college. She’ll talk about college life, stress, dealing with common issues, and how to cope with it all while keeping your head above water.

Please give Meredith a warm Psych Central welcome now over on The College Spill!
