In the wake of the deaths, a student task force released a report back in February to show how tough college has been on students’ mental health.

According to the report, 34% of students surveyed were dealing with some form of depression, and 12% expressed thoughts of suicide.

The surveys detailed in the report were taken prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, it still shows a clear picture of students’ mental health.
