Young Adult Issues
"Young adult issues, which may arise in those who are in their late teens and early twenties, may consist of difficulties with peers, sexual or developmental concerns, school or career challenges, family differences, and so on. Erik Erickson, noted developmental psychologist, described the period of young adulthood as occurring between the ages of 20 and 45, but the United States Department of Health and Human Services has redefined the young adult period as the time between ages 18 and 24. Because the rapid and numerous changes often characterizing this period may be overwhelming, young people may find the services of a therapist or other qualified mental health professional to be beneficial as they transition from adolescence to adulthood. Young adults may often find the support of a therapist to be helpful during the transition from adolescence into adulthood, especially if they experience mental health concerns or other difficulties as they become accustomed to new expectations, roles, and responsibilities. However, a low rate of professional help-seeking has been identified as a barrier to treatment for many young adults. Community organizations that implement programs for young adults may offer helpful information and support, but these may not be available in all areas. These groups may focus on a particular challenge or concern, such as substance abuse or depression, but they might also simply provide a space for young adults to talk and connect. These programs may be often available on university campuses, as well. Most programs are open to all, but some focus on the inclusion of diverse individuals who may be less welcome in other groups. When young adults seek help for mental health concerns, they can benefit from a range of interventions and therapeutic modalities. Among these are cognitive behavioral therapy and interpersonal therapy, both of which are therapeutic approaches that can help young adults identify and alter negative thought patterns and feelings and work towards personal goals. In therapy, young adults will also typically be encouraged to develop and connect with support networks. Family therapy may be a good option for young adults coping with shifting family dynamics, especially when an issue has arisen that affects familial relations. "
