Abstract/Description

There are a number of different clinical treatments that exist for treating depression other than the use of antidepressants such as SSRI’s. Such treatments include verbal psychotherapy, exercise therapy, natural supplementation, as well as making improvements in the human relationships in our lives. Considering the many different treatments that exist for treating depression, this research project will analyze these different depression treatment concepts when applied to college students and their coping mechanisms when confronted with depressive symptoms.

The years of college can be both enjoyable and very stressful. They may be seen as the gateway years for preparing young adults for the real-life world ahead. These years bring about new experiences and independence, however they may also present to the individual a number of new stress factors. The purpose of this project is to look at different methods in managing depressive symptoms in college students. Surveys will be issued to participating students in order to collect data in regards to depressive symptoms intensity as well as tendencies in coping with these feelings such as peer mentoring, exercising, food supplementation, comfort eating or substance (drug or alcohol) use.
