UVA-LogoCHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) _ University of Virginia health officials say that students at the school are seeking out psychological help in record numbers. Executive Director of Student Health Dr. Chris Holstege tells The Daily¬†Progress that the number of U.V.A. students seeking appointments at the university’s office of Counseling and Psychological Services, rose 25 percent in the past year. He says the increase follows a 19 percent rise over the past 10 years, with appointments outpacing student growth. That trend is echoed in a Center for Collegiate Mental Health survey that shows students’ use of psychological services to have grown by about 25 percent at 93 major¬†universities in the past six years.
