The arrival to the university marks a period of transition for young people. Through this alteration, students face new challenges, like making independent decisions about their lives and studies, adjusting to the academic demands of an ill-structured learning environment, and act together with a diverse range of new network. In addition, many students might have leave their home for the first time. The possibilities of experiencing common psychological problems, such as depression, anxiety and stress increase throughout adolescence and reach a peak in early adulthood which makes university students a particularly vulnerable population.
