It is no secret that most places need to re-vamp their schooling and how they deal with anxiety and stress within their students. Speaking as a student myself, an idea that seems to make the most sense to me would be to allot about twenty minutes of class time to studying or completing work for that class. Yes we have time after class but most of us hope to spend that time seeing family or friends, or maybe taking some much needed me time.
Now for this next part, I need your guys’ help. What are some ideas you all have as to how we could truly fix our schooling systems for the better. We are in the middle of the most unsure time of our lives and the world will never be the same when this is all over. I need your ideas and help to create a solution that could be the new way we move forward as students in our futures.
As a high school senior who is hoping to start my fall semester of college next year I am both excited and apprehensive towards my future. Despite the fact that I love to learn and I am so excited about my major, I know that sometimes school can seem suffocating and I don’t want to experience the same struggles I did in high school with my classes in college. With a future as uncertain as it has ever been, I believe that the way to make my and others futures as bright as possible is to educate parents of younger children on the signs of stress and anxiety within their kids surrounding school. If we can create a more helpful environment with our youngest group of students, our futures would look infinitely brighter. Before COVID-19 I tutored elementary students three times a week after school and I still have a strong connection with those teachers. I plan to reach out to them and to local mental health foundations and create a plan for nurturing a generation of students who aren’t afraid to fail on their way to success in school.
- Most mental health disorders have their peak onset during young adulthood. Kessler et al.  observed that by the age of 25 years, 75% of those who will have a mental health disorder have had their first onset.
- Anxiety disorders are the most prevalent psychiatric problems among college students, with approximately 11.9 % of college students suffering from an anxiety disorder
- Social connections: The single most effective route to providing a more resilient developmental pathway for students with a history of adversity is through positive social connections.
- Physical exercise is a readily available, highly effective method of stress reduction, and one that can be promoted in school settings as part of the school day and/or through extra-curricular opportunities that are available to all, not just to elite high school athletes.
- According to the Child Mind Institute, health-care providers have seen a 17 percent increase of anxiety in children over the past 10 years . But there aren’t really that many more students seeking help and care. In fact, less than one percent of kids will seek anxiety treatment the year their symptoms begin.
