The transition to college is an exciting and optimistic time for families, but it can also be stressful. A 2017 American College Health Association Survey of 63,000 college students found that 2 in 5 students described being so depressed that it was “difficult to function,” while 3 in 5 felt “overwhelming anxiety” during the previous school year.
The additional uncertainty of how colleges will operate in the fall with COVID-19 restrictions adds another layer of stress to this important transition. And, unfortunately, counseling and psychological services on campus are frequently overloaded with long waitlists, and some students may not feel comfortable visiting the office for a variety of reasons.
UpLift’s Transition to College program is designed to help students navigate the complex process of transitioning to college, with assistance from an experienced clinician, and the convenience of a mobile app-based experience.
During the introductory session, an UpLift clinician will facilitate a conversation with students and parents including developing a shared understanding of communication expectations and what to do in the event of an emergency or things don’t go according to plan.
After this introductory session, your student will have four one-on-one telehealth sessions with their UpLift clinician to further discuss and prepare for the college transition. These sessions are full of helpful information applicable to every student transitioning to college and will include practical skills including:
The Transition to College program costs $950 and includes all of the telehealth sessions and content described above. Optional, additional one-on-one teletherapy sessions will be billed at either $150 per hour or $500 for a 4-week treatment package.
