Learn how to help troubled students struggling with stress, mental health issues, and adverse childhood experiences.

Dr. Michael Martynowicz, Associate Professor of Psychology and Counseling; Field Director of Psychology and Counseling; Director of MS in Psychology Program, University of Saint Francis-Fort Wayne.


College students have always dealt with stress and mental health issues, but incidence rates have increased dramatically over the past decade. The majority of college students report feeling anxious and overwhelmed by their studies, one in four meets the diagnostic criteria for a psychological disorder, and one-third report having considered suicide. This alarming trend has also recently been observed in the younger adolescent population. Unfortunately, many of these individuals do not seek help and attempt to deal with the struggles on their own. Often coupled with these concerns is a history of adverse childhood experiences (e.g., neglect, abuse, dysfunctional family structure). Research indicates that an increasing number of students deal with adversity as children, and there can be significant long-term consequences.

Poor mental health and wellness as well as adverse childhood experiences are strongly related to student achievement and success. With the rise in the prevalence of mental health and stress-related academic challenges among today’s youth population, it is imperative that communities recognize the need to better understand the psychosocial and behavioral factors that impact our kids. This presentation highlights the statistics and research on these current student issues and provides information regarding avenues for prevention, intervention, and local resources.
