Transcript of Stress & Anxiety in High School Students

Finally Academic stress has proven to be a large contributor to students who experience anxiety and depression
All students experience high levels of stress regardless of involvement in school and grades
Students who are more heavily involved in school activities and put more effort into their school work experience the greatest amount of academic stress
It is important to have systems in place and to be aware of academic stress to both conquer it and become a much more successful student Abstract & Introduction Stress & Anxiety in High School Students Stress and anxiety is an inevitable factor of the student life
There has been a major increase of stress in the lives of students in the twenty first century
A standard 9 question survey was administrated to 50 high school students at the senior university level
This survey identified areas of great stress including academics in the lives of students
It is hypothesized that the more a student is involved in and the more effort that is put into school work, the more stress the student will experience
The results proved that 86% of students experienced a higher than normal amount of stress directly caused by academics The Strydom, Preotrius, and Joubert Study Three social scientists teamed up to study various students who experience anxiety and depression
81.4% of the studied students who had either or both mental illnesses attributed their main source of stress to be from school and academics
The number of students suffering from depression and anxiety has increased astronomically in the last few decades with a higher demand in secondary school education Results & Comparison Analysis The more effort put into academics the more a student is inclined to academic stress
Academic stress is much broader involving coarse load, extra-curricular activities, and post-secondary education. These three factors greatly contribute to how stressed students are.
Many of the secondary research material focused on the role of the parent. Through my primary research it is discovered that "family issues" was the third most common stressor for students The Role of the Parent Expectations for secondary school and post-secondary school have greatly increased from previous generations
The dedication that academics require from students has resulted in many students withdrawing from their families
The expectations from parents solely has caused great turmoil in the lives of students What's Next... More systems in place for academic support; counseling, class-specific help, etc..
Lower expectations for parents to ease stress
Post-Secondary education focusing on both academics and profiles of applicants (extra curricular, personality traits, etc..) Do you think there has been an increase in the amount of stress for students in the past few decades? Do you think academics are a large contributor to various mental disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder, depression or even suicide? Do you think family issues and parental expectations greatly increase the amount of stress students experience in school? The Coping Mechanisms There has been a major decrease in the quantity of coping mechanisms in high schools students
This lack of coping mechanisms puts teens at higher risks of being affected by mental illnesses
Studies have shown that the quantity of coping mechanisms is heavily dependent on a students attitude toward school Primary Research A 9 question survey was administered to 50 high school senior students at the university level
These questions heavily surrounded topics such as marks, post-secondary education, extra-curricular, etc. Survey Results Comparing Results
