Have you considered an independent living program? There is a phenomenal independent living program for young adults in St George, UT, known as At The Crossroads (ATC). ATC is highly recommended by Educational Consultants and therapists from Mississippi. We encourage you to find out more.

At The Crossroads has helped hundreds and families of struggling young adults find solutions to the growing problem associated with young adults who are stuck, and unable or unwilling to transition into adulthood. According to the National Alliance of Mental Illness, there are 3 million young adults in America diagnosed with serious mental health issues and most of which are struggling to find a pathway into the adult world.

NAMI published an article titled, "On The Move: Helping Young Adults with Serious Mental Health needs Transition into Adulthood," stating, in part, "Youth and young adults who have been diagnosed with a Serious Emotional Disturbance or Serious Mental Illness (SED/SMI) such as major depressive or anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, schizophrenia, or conduct disorder face a number of risks and challenges as they struggle to become adults." (for more on this article, click here). The facts are that some young men and young women need professional help to complete the shift from adolescence to adulthood.

At The Crossroads provides behavioral and emotional counseling from psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, substance abuse specialists, and professional counselors (as needed).

Job Training and Academic Support For Young Adults From Mississippi

At The Crossroads isn't just an independent living facility dedicated to helping troubled young adults from Mississippi. We're are known for providing the best job training and academic support for young adults in need of therapeutic intervention. We strongly believe that getting the right training & and education to secure a job will push a young adult forward with their life. Successful independence is directly related to successful employment, and employment is predicated on training and education. Independence is always attached to a person's ability to provide for themselves, and getting the right support is the best way to make this happen.

Students finishing school and learning new career pathOur job training programs provide young men and women a new perspective and a new start toward a successful and fulfilling future. We provide a very effective approach by providing specialized job coaching. Effectual employment training and practical applications of workplace "best practices" will be key components to their success. Crossroads’ students attend school and go to work while living in a structured environment (including therapeutic support when needed).

Another important aspect of the treatment we provide is academic assistance. Many of the young adults from Mississippi who enroll with ATC are still in need of completing their education. However, before they can successfully pursue a degree or trade, most of our students need to develop study skills and change their approach (attitude) toward academics. We have been very successful in helping young people restore their academic hopes and dreams. In addition, we provide specialized assistance for those with learning disorders (like ADHD).

All of the ATC elements work together to help the young adults transform into the person they want to be.

Important facts that parents should know..

When parents and teens need to talk about sex, it's not always so easy. If you wait for the perfect moment, you might miss the best opportunities. Keep the discussion going by seizing the moment, being honest, being direct to clearly state your feelings about oral sex and intercourse, presenting the risks objectively, considering your teen’s point of view, talking about feelings, attitudes and values and letting your teen know that it’s OK to talk with you about sex.

Your teen is constantly crushing his dependency needs so that he can function independently in a demanding environment. Your presence, with all of its comforting reassurance and warmth, signals to him that he can relax and let down his guard. Expect him to act childish sometimes at home, and don't be afraid of coddling him a little.
