Adolescents and Young Adults
Mental health challenges in children, adolescents, and young adults are real and widespread. Even before the pandemic, an alarming number of young people struggled with feelings of helplessness, depression, and thoughts of suicide — and rates have increased over the past decade. The COVID-19 pandemic further altered their experiences at home, school, and in the community, and the effect on their mental health has been devastating. The future wellbeing of our country depends on how we support and invest in the next generation…”– U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy (12/7/2021)
Adolescence and early adulthood for young women is more challenging now than it’s ever been. It’s normal to want to spend more time with friends, be more independent and continue to figure out who you are as a person. It’s also a time of multiple life changes and adjustments whether it’s getting a job for the first time, graduating high school or going off to college. The COVID pandemic interrupted these developmental processes and milestones for everyone, and we’re just starting to see the consequences of that unfold now.
If you’re a teen or young adult who is struggling with depression, anxiety or you’re having difficulty finding the “new normal” since COVID, please reach out, or have a parent do so soon. Talking to a therapist can be super helpful to help get you back on track.
