Is There Really A Failure To Lauch Syndrome?

Is There Really A Failure To Lauch Syndrome?

Is There Really A Failure To Launch Syndrome?

By: Josh White, MA, LCMHC, CGPPosted: Section: Featured Articles

While not technically a medical diagnosis, Failure to Launch Syndrome is a term commonly used to describe young adults who are having a difficult time transitioning into adulthood. While some see this struggle to move into adulthood as a growing concern, others see this so-called syndrome as just another talking point. It may have you wondering what the truth really is. Could there really be a breakdown in today's culture that is impairing young adults' ability to become independent?

Look At The Facts On Failure To Launch

Debt and Depression As CausesStudies show that as many as 31.5 percent of young adults, from the ages of 18 to 34 years old, still live at home with their parents. This is certainly the highest rate for the last several generations. Some of this is caused by a high unemployment rate among millennials and record-high student loan debt that is now averaging $33,000.

However, there are underlying factors affecting young adults today as well. Many mental health issues and learning disabilities are not detected until the late teen years or early 20s, which makes this transition even more difficult. Clinical depression also is becoming an alarming problem, and suicide is the second most frequent cause of death among young adults today. Add the growing trend of chemical addiction to the mix and it is very easy to see how the Failure to Launch Syndrome may have developed and the effects it is having.

How to Help With The Launch

Struggling with Failure to Launch Syndrome can be both physically and financially straining on the young adults and their parents. Psychotherapy is helping some people through this transition phase, especially those also dealing with a learning disability, addiction, depression, or other mental health issue. Learning to set boundaries, developing realistic expectations of themselves and others, acquiring valuable life skills, and creating both long- and short-term goals can help millennials who are stuck, transitioning them to the next stage of life.

Rehab centers Various centers devoted to behavioral health are also helping millennials struggling with Failure to Launch Syndrome. Supporting these young adults to move out of their parents home and into a safe environment that teaches them the vital life skills needed to go forward to the next life stage is often the ideal solution. It allows young adults to deal with their Failure to Launch Syndrome, as well as all the underlying factors, such as drug abuse and depression.
