Introducing Life as You(th) Know ItI’m pleased to introduce our new blog, Life as You(th) Know It, by C.Y. (“Yan”) Chow. It is a blog about dealing with everything youths today have to deal with — from college and study woes, to relationship issues, family crises, friendship drama and everything in-between.

I believe teens and young adults often have the greatest need for mental health and psychology information and resources, but also face the greatest challenge in actually accessing such resources (for numerous reasons). Hopefully blogs such as this one help de-mystify the psychology and mental health of youth.

Despite campaigns by both parents to become either an architect or lawyer, Yan is currently a final year BSc Psychology student at the University of Warwick in England. She aspires to write for the silver screen someday and, besides spending her free time since the age of ten penning imaginary box-office hits, is your average 20-year-old who has a longstanding passion for music, holds a black belt in Taekwondo, and enjoys indulging in pop culture such as Facebook, Twitter and the best television comedy ever, 30 Rock.

Please check out the new blog and give Yan a warm welcome!
