Still. Had tonight the scary scene in the air as flight attendants, try to deal with them unruly, passenger, and a mid-air, fight breaks up also. The hidden problem, faced by many college, students, and how, one university is taking the lead in offering help. We. Are back with a problem that is underreported among, college, students depression. It's often triggered by a transition. To a new stage of life and the pressures that come with it turns, out though many colleges, just don't have the resources to deal with it effectively our, medical, correspondent dr. John Torres went, to one well-known school that's taking the lead in addressing this problem. Janet. Came to UCLA, with dreams of becoming a scientist, but an underlying, depression triggered. By the challenges, of college left. Her unable to enjoy, life just, feels like kind of dead inside in, a way you know just like you not care about things that you, know you love one. In every 10 college students struggles with a disorder so common, experts, now have a name for it college depression. We're, really talking about people who are suffering from a serious and. Potentially deadly, disease that our society, is not doing enough about which, is why UCLA, has designed an innovative, approach to fight, depression on campus, we're, offering, all students, at UCLA, the opportunity, to get screened, for depression and, if, we find that they have evidence of depression, we, offer all of them treatment an anonymous. Online survey, for incoming freshmen helps find those at-risk, toff, and you feel that others would be better off if, you were dead this, academic year over, 3700, students took the screening, it identified, 282. Who were severely, depressed. 734. With signs of moderate depression and, 607. Who were mildly depressed more. Than 1,600. Students in all those, with severe, symptoms, are offered immediate, professional help, but many universities, can't keep up with the growing number of students who need mental health services nationwide. The numbers of students with depression can overwhelm, any system, what's, the answer well, the answer has to be that, we do something more than just rely, on the trained experts, so there's a second, part of the equation called, the resilience, peer network UCLA. Has trained more than 350. Student coaches in tools proven, to reduce depression, like, talk therapy, and meditation. Simply. Remaining, aware of your breath flowing in and out. They, provide, something else to support. From someone going through the same college experience, you, can relate to that person there's, no power place it's just two students. Back.
