In her psychiatric outpatient and urgent care practices, Dr. Melissa Deuter has been an expert advisor to failure to launch young adults who are “STUCK” in a mindset of disability and their families for years. Now she brings this unique expertise to readers everywhere. Through vivid stories of typical emerging adult patients who seek treatment for mental illness and their parents who seek to free them from the psychological trap of their diagnoses, Dr. Deuter demonstrates how changes in parenting coupled with an increase in healthcare and mental health care consumption have led too many to become “STUCK in the sick role” indefinitely.
