Prior to the pandemic, the term “youth mental health crisis” was in common usage, and denoted a decades’ long rise in anxiety and depression. Then, peer isolation during the pandemic contributed to an even greater incidence of youth mental health problems and substance abuse. The demand for mental health professionals now exceeds the availability of providers in many areas. Family involvement can make all the difference – know the signs to look for and how to navigate the fallout from Covid and current mental health concerns for young adults.
You’re Not Done Yet: Parenting Young Adults in an Age of Uncertainty is a clear-eyed, optimistic guide for parents with adult children who need help navigating the challenges to launching an independent life.
Join us for a wine and cheese reception prior to the discussion.
