Mental Health Crisis at OCAD

In what broadly speaking sounds like a dog-bites-man story, there's a report that university students attracted to a career as an artist are extremely sensitive and therefore don't handle stress all that well:
The National Collegiate Health Assessment research has measured that stress. It surveys university students across North America. It found that 66 per cent of OCAD students said they'd felt hopeless at some point in the past 12 months. Fifteen per cent said they'd seriously considered suicide.
Yikes. Hope they don't go and do anything too drastic.
