The remainder of the spring lineup of the NYS Writers Institute has been postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

B. Janet Hibbs, a leading expert in adolescent mental health, is coauthor with Anthony Rostain, MD, of The Stressed Years of Their Lives: Helping Your Kid Survive and Thrive During Their College Years (2019) — a book that received wide attention in national media.


Amid high rates of anxiety and depression among students on college campuses, The Stressed Years of Their Lives reaffirms the vital importance of families in keeping kids healthy, and building social and emotional readiness for school.

Cosponsored by UAlbany’s Center for Behavioral Health Promotion and Applied Research, RNA Institute and School of Public Health, UAlbany’s Women in Science and Health network (WISH), and the Hudson Valley RNA Club.
