CEGEP students struggle with anxiety in transition from high school: ULaval study

January 8, 2019

A new study out of the Université Laval has found that anxiety tops the list of factors that make the transition from high school to CEGEPs more difficult, reports the Journal de Montréal. The study surveyed students over four years, starting from their fourth year of high school. According to the researchers, the anxiety symptoms were already present in the high school students, suggesting that the problem starts sooner than the transition. The study’s lead author, Simon Larose, stated that high schools need to implement mental health supports early on. Journal de Montréal (QC)
