    Depression and Suicide

    Suicide is a major threat to young adults. There may be a number of reasons why an individual comes to feel depressed and hopeless. These issues may include:
  • Breaking up of a marriage or close relationship with a loved one
  • Difficulties in interpersonal relation- ships with family or close friends
  • Worry about grades or failure in life
  • Concerns over physical appearance and personal attractiveness
  • Loss of "support systems"
  • Pessimistic feelings about the future and achieving one's goals
  • The compounding and disorienting effects of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Just feeling lonely, isolated or abandoned

  • Although you may not be feeling suicidal, you may feel a persistent sadness, anxiousness or emptiness due to loss or other factors related to depression or grief.

    Traumatic Issues

    There are a number of issues that can be extremely traumatic and precipitate an emotional crisis. These issues include:
  • Assault, rape
  • Unexpected pregnancy
  • Abuse
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Eating disorders
  • Anxiety
  • Anger management
  • HIV diagnosis
  • Death of a family member or friend
  • Divorce

  • Stress of Life

    Even everyday stress can take a toll on your personal health and well-being. This is especially true when you are attempting to juggle the multiple responsibilities of school, family and work. Unfortunately your relationships with family and loved ones may suffer as a result of these multiple demands.


    A professional therapist can objectively guide you to identify and problem-solve your stressful life issues. Sharing your feelings with a caring professional can provide validation and guidance for effective coping. Counseling can help you build and strengthen relationships, including your relationship with yourself.
