A Different Kind of College Prep
Teens should be able to handle several basic tasks on their own before college. Feeling comfortable with these tasks is particularly important for students with pre-existing mental health issues:
- Make doctor/dentist appointments.
- Get enough sleep—without parental prodding.
- Make travel reservations and get to the airport or train station.
- Advocate for themselves with teachers and other authority figures.
- Manage a budget.
- Manage emotional upheavals.
