The young adult years can be a developmentally difficult period. It’s a time when youths are forming their identities and moving from childhood to adulthood. Some students arrive to college with unresolved childhood issues or traumas. Others struggle with living away from home for the first time or may not have the skills to live independently. They may face problems, such as challenging college classes, difficulty finding a job, poor peer/family relationships, a breakup of a romantic relationship and other issues. New Directions provides clinical psychology services as part of it multi-disciplinary treatment model to help students overcome these challenges and succeed in their life goals.
