People of all ages can experience depression. However, many people experience their first episode of major depression as a teen or young adult. Some young adults may have been dealing with symptoms of depression for years with help from their families and support networks. But new situations or stressors, like going to college, having new financial responsibilities, or experimenting with alcohol or substances, exacerbate their symptoms. If young adults do not have healthy coping skills and an effective treatment strategy in place, they may find themselves in crisis or unable to function on a day-to-day basis.
Young adults with depression entering to the residential treatment program at Skyland Trail admit to the Rollins Campus. The Rollins Campus is a specialized residential community for young adults ages 18 to 25.
In addition to a residential community, young adults with depression will be assigned to a specialized recovery community. If clients are experiencing depression with psychosis, they likely will enter the Cognition and First Episode recovery community. Young adults clients with depression who are not experiencing psychosis likely will be assigned to the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) recovery community. Individuals with an alcohol or substance issue may also be assigned to the Dual Diagnosis recovery community.
We offer more than 125 different groups each week. Some groups are more general and are appropriate for clients of all ages and diagnoses. Other groups are more specialized. Examples of groups that address the unique challenges of young adults are those focused on healthy relationships in young adulthood, identity and insight, and social and assertiveness skills. Additional groups focus on LGBTQ support.
