Title

Associating Internet Usage with Depressive Behavior among College Students

Abstract

Depression is a serious mental health problem affecting a significant segment of American society today, and in particular college students. In a survey by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in 2009, 26.1% of U.S. students nationwide reported feeling so sad or hopeless almost every day for 2 or more weeks in a row that they stopped doing some usual activities [32]. Similar statistics are also reported in mental health studies by the American College Health Association, and by independent surveys [1], [2].
