Bloomberg reports:

Almost half of college-aged adults had a psychiatric disorder over a one-year span, based on research criteria that ranged from bipolar disease to substance abuse including smoking. Few sought treatment, the study found.

About one in five students failed to fulfill an obligation, had a legal problem, did something dangerous or caused social problems by using alcohol, the study found. The next most common psychiatric problems were so-called personality disorders, including obsessive-compulsive behavior, at 18 percent, according to the report in the Archives of General Psychiatry.
