Nationally, college students are more likely to use campus mental health resources compared to years past, a recent study showed. In response, Loyola’s Wellness Center staff has grown and adjusted its processes in order to assist more students, but some students say more needs to be done.
The number of students who visited campus counseling centers nationally increased by more than 30 percent between the fall of 2009 and 2015, while college enrollment increased by five percent, according to a 2015 report by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health.
