The theme of my magazine layout centers on ways to understand and work-through the stress-disease connection, given the reality that many students nationally are experiencing issues with mental health. This could be due to a number of factors including the stress of course work, trouble adjusting the challenges that a new phase of life might present, as well as other external or internal stressors. This connection between stress and disease is presented here & here in-depth by the bohemian-looking physician Gabor Maté.
