(ABC) -- A new study shows that almost a third of college students have a mental health condition.

Researchers surveyed nearly 14 thousand freshmen from 8 countries.

They found students suffered from depression, anxiety, and substance use disorder.

Transgender students and students over the age of 20 were the most likely to report mental health disorders
