Well-Being and Mental Health

Multi-disciplinary databases provide research articles related to the topic of mental health/mental well-being and student loan debt.  Use search terms such as "mental health" and "student debt" to find articles. Try narrowing your search by limiting the time period to articles published after 2017.

A few examples to get you started: 

  • Pisaniello, Asahina, A. T., Bacchi, S., Wagner, M., Perry, S. W., Wong, M.-L., & Licinio, J. (2019). Effect of medical student debt on mental health, academic performance and specialty choice: a systematic review. BMJ Open, 9(7), e029980–e029980.  (Find it at UB)
  • Kim, & Chatterjee, S. (2021). Financial Debt and Mental Health of Young Adults. Financial Counseling and Planning, 32(2), 187–201. (Request it at UB)
  • Deller, & Parr, J. (2021). Does Student Loan Debt Hinder Community Well-Being? International Journal of Community Well-Being, 4(2), 263–285. (Find it at UB)
