#TBT to a couple weeks ago when we were defining best practices in youth engagement and youth peer support with leaders in the youth movement at the USF Conference.
Words matter. Here's what's wrong with using words and phrases like "depressed" or "I have OCD" casually.
"In any year, 18.1% of US adults suffer from anxiety intense enough to be a disorder, compared to 6.9% who suffer from major depression."
Though we often equate compulsions and addictions, researchers are now drawing a sharp distinction between these two behaviors—one is about avoiding and the other about seeking.
"People often use words associated with mental illness, like 'depressed' or 'OCD,' in casual conversation as a way to express annoyance, make a joke or explain their feelings. In truth, this is hugely disrespectful to the one in five American adults who experience a mental health condition in a given year."

Register now for "Multisystemic Therapy for Emerging Adults (MST-EA): Treating Young Adults Who Have Justice Involvement and Behavioral Health Conditions" on March 22 from 1pm – 2pm PST / 4pm – 5pm EST. This webinar will feature Maryann Davis and Ashli Sheidow. During this webinar, they will discuss MST-EA, its focus on reducing recidivism and improving positive functioning, as well as emerging research on this promising intervention. There currently are no proven interventions to reduce recidivism in young adults, with or without behavioral health conditions. MST-EA focuses on reducing recidivism and increasing the young adults’ positive functioning in the critical areas of emerging adulthood (school completion, employment, independent living, and positive social relationships), as well as simultaneously ensuring treatment and management of mental illness and any co-occurring substance use disorder.
The transition to adulthood represents a unique developmental period, with significant changes in educational, vocational, and relational roles and expectations in the face of reduced family influence
