Abstract: Mental and physical health are openly talked about more than before, but it is still not talked about enough. Many individuals hear ‘health’ and think about nutrition and physical fitness, but in reality, it also pertains to the mind and spirit. College students are at high risk for poor and mental health for a variety of reasons. Due to college students being independent for their first time and a heavy work load, they are often overwhelmed. Most time they do not know how to cope and resolve situations they may encounter. The years of college aged are very important to an individual’s life, these are the years where their brain fully develops, habits are set in stone, and lifestyle changes are made. The college years represent a period of transition from youth to adulthood, where students begin to adopt life-long behaviors. Since poor mental and physical health can be the cause of various things, it can also affect students in various ways. As students begin their college years, it is important that they can recognize the signs of poor behavior and have the correct information to resolve it.
