Moving Into Adulthood Resource Center

Young people moving from adolescence into young adulthood are defined as transitional age youth. New tasks often include: moving away from family, becoming independent, developing one's identity, and learning to handle more complex relationships. For this age group, handling these tasks while adjusting to the start of college and/or moving into the working world can be challenging. The Moving Into Adulthood Resource Center from the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry contains specific family friendly information on Moving Into Adulthood.

The resource center includes the following sections: About, Glossary of Symptoms, Frequently Asked Questions, Treatment Resources, Facts for Families Sheets by Diagnosis, Video Clips, Clinical Resources, Recommended Books, How to Get Help, Links to Support Groups, and Helpful APPS.
