Care and Support Updates

Updates on the latest clinical offerings from our centers in New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.

July 21, 2022

Starting college is exciting, but it’s also stressful. With this new independence, young adults are faced with managing classes, a social life and extra-curricular activities without day-to-day support from parents. For some, so many changes and new responsibilities all at once can trigger anxiety, depression or other mental health issues. For students who need support, we’ve developed a range of evidence-based programs to help college kids and young adults thrive.

With a new school year around the corner, now is the time to schedule an evaluation for the upcoming year. To book an evaluation, please reach out to us today.

Here are some tips to help educators identify anxiety, and help kids thrive.
