Effects of Stress on Students' Physical and Mental Health and Academic Success
Shankar, Nilani L.; Park, Crystal L.
International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, v4 n1 p5-9 2016
Stress affects students in multiple ways. This article provides a conceptual overview of the direct (e.g., psychoneuroimmunological, endocrine) and indirect (health behavior) pathways through which stress affects physical health, the psychological effects of stress on mental health, and the cognitive effects of stress (e.g., attention, concentration) on academic success. We review relevant literature highlighting these links and suggest directions for future research and interventions.
