Religion can influence an individual’s understanding of, and opinions’ toward, seeking out treatment and one’s perception of mental health, using medication, and even suicide. By its nature, religion is judgmental and formative. Using HMS data, I focus on three general themes related to mental health in a college environment. I examined differences by secular public and non-secular private college and universities in variables under these three different themes.
