Program Details

Dear Parents,

As a psychiatrist, I have worked with many college students who have struggled when they go away to school due to symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD or other mental health-related issues.  Without adequate guidance, it can be tough for parents and students to navigate through this transition.  After working with so many bright, motivated students who have had to take medical leave from school, I wanted to create a psychoeducational summer program for students to begin to think about how to recognize some of the challenges of college before they happen and how to look for the right guidance and support.  In addition, I want to help parents recognize those challenges as well, and to open the lines of communication so that parents can provide a balance of support and independence to their children.  I look forward to seeing your family as we prepare for this next exciting step in your child’s life.  Please feel free to contact me with questions about the program.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Park, MD
Program Director
