The recent college admissions scandal has brought to light many of the challenges faced by young people.  The pressure to perform, succeed, and gain admission to "selective" colleges has led to an increase in anxiety disorders and other mental health problems in today's youth.  Dr. Smith will discuss some facts about college outcomes, the data on mental health issues in teens and how we can help our kids define what it truly means to be successful.
