Early adulthood is a challenging time of life. The “Quarter-life Crisis” has become ubiquitous among twenty-somethings, that angst-filled life phase punctuated by feelings of anxiety and depression. When a mood disorder begins to invade all aspects of a young adult’s life it is time to get some help.
The experts at Launch Centers have identified a common thread among its young adult clients who suffer from a mood disorder—a lack of direction in life, a sense of hopelessness and despair, and general malaise. While an organic mental health disorder can result in these symptoms, in some cases the feelings of being adrift, with no plan and no focus, can also result in the symptoms of a mood disorder.
Young adults need a plan, some kind of a road map to motivate them towards goals and dreams. Each individual has their own unique set of gifts and skill set, so no two plans will look the same. It is empowering for a young person to participate in the creation of a custom blueprint that will lead them to the fulfillment of aspirations. Launch Centers, therefore, integrates educational and vocational elements into the treatment plans for young adults with a mental health challenge.
