Eva Ranehill: The Impact of PhD Studies on Mental Health

Recent self-reported and cross-sectional survey evidence documents high levels of mental health problems among PhD students. We study the impact of PhD studies on mental health using Swedish administrative records of prescriptions for psychiatric medication for the full population of PhD students. We document that, in the years preceding their PhD, prospective students collect psychiatric medication at a rate similar to that of a matched sample of individuals holding a master’s degree. However, following the start of PhD studies, the use of psychiatric medication among PhD students increases sharply relative to the control group. This upward trend continues throughout the course of PhD studies, with estimates showing a 40% increase by the 5th year compared to pre-PhD levels.
