This presentation will review how to identify and respond to symptoms of anxiety and depression in young adults. Consideration will be given to common stressors that individuals face when progressing from adolescence to young adulthood that may contribute to the onset or escalation of mental health concerns. Strategies will be discussed for how families can respond effectively and compassionately. In addition, guidance will be offered for determining when symptoms of anxiety and depression may be significant enough to warrant clinical attention.
