Title: Young Adult Substance Use and Mental Health During the COVID-19 Pandemic and Opportunities for Prevention.

Description: The COVID-19 pandemic and resulting mitigation policies (e.g., shelter-in-place) are associated with immediate and unprecedented impacts on multiple facets of life, which may be especially true for young adults who are undergoing a critical time of personal and interpersonal development. National surveys have found young adults to have elevated rates of loneliness, depression and anxiety compared to older age groups. In this presentation, Dr. Lee will present current findings from her work exploring the impacts of the pandemic on young adult mental health and substance use. She will also present on the design and implementation of an online program called COVID-19 Check-in with Yourself: Young Adult Health and Emotions. This program was designed to provide an opportunity for young adults to reflect on how they are feeling and their coping skills, as well as to offer tailored strategies for stress management, increasing social support and addressing alcohol use during the pandemic that may lead to additional risks.
