Mental Health and Career Development of College Students.
Hinkelman, Jeanne M.; Luzzo, Darrell Anthony
Mental health and career development have the potential to affect each other reciprocally, yet very little has been written about the combined effect of mental health and career development of college students. College students seeking services in college career and counseling centers often present both types of issues simultaneously or both become apparent while counselors work with them. Many students seen in college career centers are symptomatic of depression or anxiety, while presenting concerns about choice of a major or career. It is, therefore, in the best interest of students to have both mental health and vocational services available to them during college or graduate school. Correlational studies between mental health and career development variables affecting college students may give direction for additional studies. With additional research focusing on this topic, researchers and practitioners may be able to collaborate on the development of a theoretical model addressing the interaction of college mental health and career development.
