The college class of 2014 is seriously stressed out. So says a new report from UCLA. So why are college students rating their own emotional health at record lows? Is it the economy? A flatter, more crowded world? Are things really getting harder for our nation’s college students? And if so, why? We talk with one of the authors of that study, Sylvia Hurtado who is the Director of the Higher Education Research Institute at UCLA. And we’re also joined by Richard Kadison, who is the Chief of Mental Health Services at Harvard University. He is also the author of College of the Overwhelmed: The Campus Mental Health Crisis and What to Do About It.
