Dr Oz: What Is Duck Syndrome? + College Suicides & Pressure


Dr Oz: Duck Syndrome

Dr Oz began his show by sharing that at his alma mater, the University of Pennsylvania, six students took their own lives. Across the country, students are under so much pressure to be perfect that they begin to feel anxious and depressed. The phenomenon is called “duck syndrome” because on the surface, a duck looks very calm, but beneath the surface, the duck is frantically paddling its feet trying to stay afloat, much like a lot of kids of adult age who are just becoming mature.
