Our expert says:
It's possible, of course, and such condition if unrecognized and untreated can become more complex and troublesome. HE really needs to see a ood local psychiatrist ( perhaps there's someone he could see available through Student Health ? ) for a proper in person assessment, and then a iscussion of treatment options. CBT style counselling / therapy can be very effective, as can some medications, including some also used to treat Depression. Talk it over gently with him, and try to understand why he feels reluctant to see someone about his - he would probably appreciate feeling better and working more efficiently, after treatment
