Treating Young Adults
Mental Health in Young Adults:
In the United States, the transition into adulthood begins in the late teens and continues through the mid-20s. This can be a stressful process because young people become more self-sufficient and make decisions that shape their futures. When compared with adults aged 26 or older, the rate of SUD (substance use disorder) among young adults aged 18 to 25 is more than twice as high (19.1 vs. 6.8 percent), and young adults also have higher rates of co-occurring mental illness and SUD than adults aged 26 or older. (Source) Sometimes Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Grief, or PTSD can be at the root of turbulence in a young adult's life, we can help! Addressing these important health concerns is of the utmost importance to ensure a healthy transition from adolescence to adulthood.
How do we treat young adults at our office in Dublin, Ohio?
We all need help, regardless of how old we are, unfortunately, often times, young adults feel like they have no one to turn to. That is why we offer counseling for those young adults who need help in their transition from childhood to adulthood. People going into adulthood today feel like outcasts, trying to build a stable life while trying to keep their creative sides. We will work with young adults to learn more about their background, like friends, family, relationships, recreational activities, and anything that defines who they feel they are as a person. Then we will work with that individual to tailor a treatment plan that is specific to their needs.
More about our treatment style:
At the offices of Kaela Rae Vance LPCC-S, conveniently located in Dublin, on the North West Columbus, we take our patient's health seriously! We offer a holistic perspective to patient's mental health, that is often integrates not only a variety of therapy approaches, but also considers a patient's physical wellness. We recognize that taking a medication as a quick fix to reduce symptoms does not address what's causing those symptoms. As such, in addition to counseling - after we meet with our patients and get an idea of what specific concerns they have and what their lifestyle is like - we may refer patients to nutritional consultants, wellness experts, chiropractors, psychiatrists, or other medical specialists as appropriate.
