Thesis Therapy

Emotional challenges experienced by doctoral students are a well-kept secret.  While our mission is to provide editing and data analysis support, we are acutely aware that completing a doctoral degree is highly stressful and can interfere with personal health and life-work balances.

A 2014 well-being report released by the University of California, Berkeley, reported that 47% of doctoral students met the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) criteria for depression.  The University of Michigan in 2021 estimated that a quarter of its graduate students were receiving medication and/or counseling to treat depression or anxiety. 

Students who are experiencing a high degree of emotional challenges are encouraged to seek additional support.
