    Being A Grad Student With A Mental Illness:

    Some schools are better than others about helping students work through mental illnesses. I'm a grad student in science (female) who is undergoing treatment for anxiety. Lots of anxiety. Not a lot of people talk about this in school, or how it can start to take over your life...

    I just finished a grad level literature class
