Half Of All PhD Students Suffer From Psychological Distress

A brand new study by a team of international researchers has underscored just how common such conditions crop up in this very specific demographic. Writing in the journal Research Policy, it’s concluded that one-in-two PhD students experience psychological distress, and one-in-three are at risk of experiencing a psychiatric disorder, either over the short or long-term – particularly depression.
“Most prevalent are feelings of being under constant strain, unhappiness and depression, sleeping problems due to worries, inability to overcome difficulties and not being able to enjoy day-to-day activities,” the team, led by Ghent University, write in their paper.
