Abstract

Transitional age youth with a history of mood disorders, such as major depressive disorder, are uniquely vulnerable to clinical destabilization and relapse in the context of life transition. Moving from a structured adolescence to a more independent and potentially more demanding young adult life can result in worsening symptoms and barriers to effective help-seeking. Transitional age youth newly diagnosed are exposed to their first course of treatment of a potentially chronic condition. This article describes the challenges inherent in navigating this life transition, and also offers strategies to promote a successful “launch” into adulthood.
