Psychiatry and psychology are a practice in the community today. It is not anymore restricted to asylums, mental institutions or psychiatric hospitals. Health encompasses the complete well being on the physical, psychological, social, emotional, familial, and environmental as well as spiritual front. It is not the responsibility of the treating therapist always; it is rather a combined effort to make the clients achieve their true potential at their own free will.

Transition from adolescence to adulthood: the challenges to establish “transition psychiatry”

Early and Middle Adulthood | Boundless Psychology

As individuals move through early and middle adulthood, a variety of physical changes take place in the body. As we age, our bodies change in physical ways. One can expect a variety of changes to take place through the early- and middle-adult years. Each person experiences age-related changes based on many factors: biological factors such as molecular and cellular changes are called primary aging , while aging that occurs due to controllable factors, such as lack of physical exercise and poor diet, is called secondary aging. Aging factors : As an individual progresses through adulthood, a variety of factors can affect the aging process. This includes primary factors like decline of cellular function and oxidative damage, and secondary factors like an unhealthy lifestyle.

Emerging Adulthood as a Critical Stage in the Life Course

Emerging adulthood, viewed through the lens of life course health development, has the potential to be a very positive developmental stage with postindustrial societies giving adolescents and emerging adults a greater opportunity for choice and exploration but also greater challenges with greater educational and social role requirements. This increased agency in the context of less structure is occurring as the human brain is still developing higher-level capacities such as executive functioning. The person-context interactions during EA are many and complex, leading to multiple different pathways through emerging adulthood. Those with sufficient economic and adult supports as well as personal resources and maturity will be more likely to choose well and embark on a positive trajectory during EA.
Available in English and German. The transition from adolescence to adulthood is a major developmental challenge for everyone. While it is often successful, it sometimes fails or threatens to fail — particularly in young people with mental illness. In a comprehensive key issues paper, the DGKJP and DGPPN the German scientific associations of child and adolescent psychiatry and psychotherapy, and adult psychiatry and psychotherapy now draw attention to these challenges and offer solutions to optimise the process of a planned transition from adolescent centred to adult oriented mental health care and thus to support adolescents in solving related problems. As adolescence and young adulthood represent a particularly vulnerable period for the development and chronification of mental disorders, the best possible care needs to be ensured for these age groups.
