Many of you are probably rolling your eyes when you read “the talk” because that phrase automatically connects to sex.
When I mean “the talk” I’m actually referring to mental health supports for college students. Have parents discussed what counselors they should contact on campus or the agreement that if going to school is too overwhelming that adjustments can be made?
Even the most prepared kids academically are unaware of the stress that can occur when they take off for college.
Have guidance staff discussed this information to seniors while they are preparing applications for school, reviewing SAT scores, and scholarships?
Maybe it’s time to get everyone on board to have “The Talk” so everyone is aware of the help they can get.
What are/were your plans for transitioning into college? Did anyone talk about MH services or what happens if you need to come home?
