Moving back in with your parents can affect your mental health

Young adults who return to live with their parents may experience unforeseen emotional consequences. Jennifer Caputo, a researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Rostock, Germany said the move back home can be detrimental to their mental health.

The findings, slated to be published in the journal Society and Mental Health, “suggest that norms about attaining residential independence in young adulthood remain powerful,” Caputo said. “These findings are consistent with research indicating that disappointments in other areas of young people’s lives can have mental-health consequences.”

Moving back in with parents can be triggered by losing a job or a relationship ending, the researchers noted.
