Clinical psychologist releases new book with guidance for students as they transition to college

By: PRLog

'After the Acceptance Letter' by Dr. Gina Davis, PsyD offers tips for how college students can embrace emotional wellness and mental health for life

OAKLAND, Calif. - March 31, 2021 - PRLog -- The transition to college life can have some bumps in the road for many young adults. Especially in the post-pandemic age, many students are struggling to maintain the proper balance necessary to achieve emotional wellness.

According to the American Psychological Association, 41.6 percent of college students struggle with anxiety and 36.4 percent of college students are depressed. And those numbers are growing.

One licensed clinical psychologist who has worked in multiple college and university settings wants to help. Dr. Gina Davis has published the new book "After the Acceptance Letter: Seven Healthy Mindsets for Emotional Wellness in College" (Rosered, March 2021).

The book is a self-help guide aimed at supporting college and high school students in learning how to manage their mental health during the college years. Readers are encouraged to reflect on the relationship between their personal values and undergraduate goals, set realistic expectations, and practice self-compassion. The book also includes a guide to additional resources, interactive exercises for self-reflection, and information on how to utilize student support services on campus.

"Mental health is much more of a discussion now than it was when I was a young adult, and I'm so happy to see that change," she said. "I'm concerned, however, by the number of students I see who still aren't having those conversations with their families, teachers, friends, etc. I want this book to promote open dialogue and normalize talking with others about mental health issues. Learning how to manage one's mental health is a lifelong process."

After the Acceptance Letter is now available in paperback and eBook formats on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For more information, go to Follow the book on Instagram at
