    TLDR Hair loss in Chinese college students leads to various psychological issues, so treatment should address both hair loss and mental health.
    The study assessed the psychological state of 355 Chinese college students with androgenetic alopecia (AGA) and found that they exhibited increased levels of somatization, obsessive-compulsive behavior, interpersonal sensitivity, depression, phobic anxiety, psychoticism, and global severity index (GSI) compared to control subjects. The study suggests that therapy for these students should include approaches for their psychological problems caused by AGA in addition to those for hair loss.
