Like many college students, Nicki Cupit had a lot on her plate as her graduation date approached -- a full course load, two jobs and an internship. She became overwhelmed, stressed out and depressed.
"Yeah, I kind of just lost all hope," she said. "It definitely got to the point where I didn't know how I was going to continue."
Cupit is just one of many. Depression, anxiety and other mental-health problems are on the rise at colleges across the country, and at MSU Denver, which serves a large number of first-generation, veteran and other nontraditional students, the data are even more alarming.
Researchers are trying to determine what's behind those numbers, as the University works to boost its mental-health resources for those who need them most.
