From two leading child psychologists comes a guide for the parents of every college-bound kid who want to know whatís normal mental health and behavior, whatís not, and how to intervene before itís too late

All parenting is in preparation for letting go. However, the paradox of parenting is that the more we learn about adolescent development and risk, the more frightened we become for our children, and the more we want to stay involved in our childrenís lives. This becomes particularly necessary, and also particularly challenging, when a child goes off to college: mid- to late adolescence, the years just before and after students head off to college, coincides with the emergence of many mood disorders and other major mental health issues. Recognizing how critical this period is, parents want to hold on tightójust at the moment their teenís healthy development requires that they pull back.

Thatís why, when family psychologist Dr. B. Hibbs's own son came home from college mired in a dangerous depressive spiral, she turned to Dr. Anthony Rostain. A nationally recognized expert in child and adolescent psychiatry, he also has a secret superpower: he understands the arcane rules governing privacy and parental involvement in studentsí mental health care on college campuses, the same rules that sometimes hold parents back from getting good care for their kids. Now, these two doctors have combined their expertise in adolescent mental health, and assembled this field guide for every parent of a college or college-bound student who wants to know whatís normal, whatís not, and how to intervene before itís too late.
