62 percent of all Clemson students reported that in the past 12 months, depression, stress and/or anxiety were factors that negatively affected their individual academic performance (NCHA, 2012).
Even though many college students experience stress, depression and anxiety, college students also utilize campus mental health services.
In a 2012 NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) national survey report on mental health of college students, they found that 55 percent of students accessed mental health services and support from on campus resources.
Because many students turn to campus resources for mental health care, it is important for you to know that Clemson University has one of the best student health centers in the country! Redfern Health Center is one of only 17 student health centers in the U.S. that is accredited by the Joint Commission. Redfern offers counseling and psychological services to students who have paid the health fee at the beginning of the semester with tuition as well as comprehensive health services and support groups for all your health needs.
