Abstract "With campus hazards like binge drinking and sexual assault making routine headlines and the skyrocketing rate of college mental health problems, parents are rightly concerned about "letting go." The transitional years of late adolescence and young adulthood are a time when mood disorders, substance abuse, and other serious mental health challenges emerge. When problems first arise, it can be hard for parents or students to determine what's normal and what's a sign of a looming, more serious emotional problem. Recognizing how critical this period is, parents want to hold on tight--just at the moment when their teen's healthy development requires that they pull back. At college, many teens are independent for the first time, possibly isolated in a new environment, cut off from the familiar supports and resources they might so desperately need, should a crisis occur. This book is a unique collaboration. When family psychologist Dr. Hibbs's own son came home from college mired in a dangerous depressive spiral, she turned to Dr. Rostain, a nationally recognized expert in child and adolescent psychiatry. Dr. Rostain also has a secret superpower: He understands the arcane rules governing privacy and parental involvement in students' mental health care on college campuses--the same rules that sometimes hold parents back from getting good care for their kids. Now these two doctors have combined their expertise in adolescent and young adult mental health care. From their years of clinical and personal experience, they have assembled a practical and compassionate guide for every parent of a college or college-bound student who wants to know what's normal, what's not, and how to help and intervene before it's too late."--Dust jacket.
