Students are affected through the lack of mental health support in schools. The increasing stress levels due to pressures in school, such as; doing well, short deadlines for assignments, and balance between extracurriculars and school. Many students are turning to forms of relieving stress such as vaping and drug use. Without key support from the school, it negatively affects a student's success and results in poor performance in school. Such problems have shown to cause psychological problems in early adulthood. Students should gain access to more mental health resources and support from specialized mental health workers on campus and should be provided with more leniency on deadlines if a student is struggling with mental health problems.
