Canadian PSE students are lonely, stressed, and overwhelmed, according to results released by the National College Health Assessment. More than 89% of students surveyed reported feeling “overwhelmed” by their responsibilities, and 63.9% of students reported feeling “very lonely” at some point within the last year.
