MONDAY, July 9, 2018 (HealthDay News) — College is a unique stage in a young person’s development. But newfound independence coupled with the pressures of classwork and the need to fit in can make this a very emotional time.

Tips from The Jed Foundation can help you help your child get through this transition.
