Dr. Anthony Rostain

We are thrilled to have this opportunity to hear from Dr. Rostain regarding this important new book, co-authored with Janet Hibbs, Ph.D., M.F.T. The book is “a guide for the parents of every college and college-bound student who want to know what’s normal mental health and behavior, what’s not, and how to intervene before it’s too late.” 

Dr. Rostain is Professor of Psychiatry and Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine, and is a practicing psychiatrist at Penn Medicine and The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He is also the former chair of the University’s Task Force on Student Psychological Health and Welfare (2014-2016).

When Drs. Rostain and Hibbs were recently interviewed by Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air,” Dr. Hibbs noted that “One of the reasons we wrote this book is not to scare parents, but to help them know what they can do to help…  When a child, for whatever reason, is hopeless or verging on that, families are incredibly, vitally important in maintaining hope. … Having the emotional expression of the family convey warmth, support, unconditional support, not judgment, that … is one of the best medicines.”
