Resources for use with Children and Young People

We've recently published a new guide to promoting student mental health.
While mental health is slowly gaining mainstream societal recognition (if not acceptance), it can still be an exceedingly vague issue. We created this guidebook to help students and their families better understand the mental challenges that many students will face while in college and how to properly deal with them.
We crafted this guidebook with the help of two experts in the field, Dr. Friedemann Schaub and Blake LeVine. Schaub is the developer of the Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment program and the author of The Fear and Anxiety Solution. LeVine is a life coach who uses his personal experience with bipolar disorder to educate people  about managing mental illness.

University and College Student resource 

We created this guide to show college students (and their friends and families) the various on-campus and online resources they can use should a mental health concern arise. This includes an in-depth look at the most common issues among college students, how to identify those issues, and, perhaps most importantly, when and how to get help. Key mental health and related concerns highlighted in the guidebook include:
- Anxiety & Stress
- Depression
- Alcohol & Substance Abuse
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Anorexia & Bulimia
Four experts in student mental health and behavior contributed to the creation of this guide, including Dr. Craig Rodgers, a Bureau of Study Counselor at Harvard University. Dr. Rodgers holds multiple advanced degrees in clinical psychology and adolescent risk and prevention.
