Abstract

Nurse practitioners working on college campuses are vital to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of depression. Every year, untreated depression results in school failure, social isolation, promiscuity, self-medication with drugs and alcohol, and suicide. On a college campus, collaboration between the student health clinic and the counseling center is an optimal approach to preventive counseling and treatment for depression.
