New Levels of Stress: Anxiety & Depression

College is a time of growing and should be filled with new challenges and friends, but the stress can trigger new responses in a student's body: anxiety and depression

(First tell signs of a real anxiety or depression disorder)

Jeremy also suggested an article on anxiety. If the two of you coordinate to come up with completely different angles, so that the two articles will complement each other, rather than overlap, I think the story will work.

Anonymous sources are always less credible than named sources. (Let's talk about this in class.)
