(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.

One in three freshmen said they had at least one mental health issue in their lifetime or in the last year and one in five have gone through major depression.

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