Young Adults Support Group

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The transition from adolescence to young adulthood is a complicated experience made more difficult with the addition of OCD. This group provides a safe environment for all attending young adults to get ideas and support, and will allow them to share their experiences with other conference goers. Topics discussed will be of specific interest for young adults such as living independently, applying for jobs, entering higher education, and creating a social life. The group encourages free flowing discussion to allow all attendees to participate. Before the group finishes, attendees will be invited to share contact information with others to encourage
interaction after the conference is over. This will allow the young adults to build friendships that continue to provide support.
