The College Transition: Plan for Success

by Dr. Kate Bell

Dr. Bell offers guidelines and strategies to promote increasing independence and college readiness in high school students, with a special focus on teaching the self-care necessary for good mental health at college. Specific issues addressed include: ways that parents can foster greater independence; helping students clarify their own goals and values; how to give students increasing responsibility; and identifying useful supports at school. Parents are encouraged to learn ways to help insulate students against the climates of stress and competition that can affect mental health at college. Finally, Dr. Bell provides an overview of resources to access at college that can help students to have a successful first year.
