Young Adult/Transition

Young Adult/Transition

Transitioning to Adulthood

11.2% of adults aged 18 and over have regular feelings of worry, nervousness, or anxiety.  And 4.7% of adults aged 18 and over have regular feelings of depression. (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2019)

Mental health issues can emerge during an individual’s early twenties, with the onset of most mental illnesses peaking between ages 18 and 24. However, individuals with the proper support, skills and symptom education can thrive while learning to cope with mental health and adjustment issues.
