Is depression in graduate school common?
I’ve recounted my struggles with depression while in graduate school in an essay, Depression and Graduate School.
If you’re dealing with chronic unhappiness, consider seeking out professional help. If you’re a graduate student there are likely free or low cost resources on campus.
If you’re having suicidal thoughts or considering harming yourself, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)
