Depression Treatment for Teens
How We Can Help Your Teen
Depression in teens can become overwhelming. It is estimated that one in six people will experience dperession in their lives, with it often appearing in the teenage years.
When depression starts effecting your teen’s ability to thrive, it is time to seek guidance and professional help.
We understand teens struggling with depression and we can help.
From the moment we first meet you, through the treatment experience and beyond, we work with you so your teen can be supported and reach their full potential, living a happier, healthier life.
Every client that comes to Moriah is special and we work to ensure treatment matches their specific clinical needs. As we meet each of our clients, we get to know them, working with you and them to determine and meet their treatment goals.
By providing multiple levels of treatment, we are able to meet your teen where they are and match them to the right treatment.
Keys to Success
Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment for your teen to gain information and skills about their depression and the issues related to it. Education support, family involvement, and therapeutic support are key in bringing about the change your teen needs.
When clients come to Moriah, they are often behind with schoolwork. Through resources and tools at our program, we help them keep up and catch up. The school program is provided in partnership with local educational professionals, to offer a full range of support.
Family support and encouragement are critical in helping your teen make the changes necessary to live a healthy minded life. Family involvement is an important part of successful treatment, that fact has been proven by research. Those closest to your teen know them the best, are most able to provide meaningful input, and are the best support system throughout treatment and beyond. Another part of family involvement at Moriah also included family education. Knowledge is a powerful tool in supporting your teen and we are dedicated to helping.
Our therapeutic programs include individual therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), group therapy, experiential therapy and other therapeutic activities as the heart of our programs. With individual therapy and group therapy, your teen is able to learn more about the issues around their depression and effective coping mechanisms. With art therapy, music therapy, yoga, hiking, and equine therapy among our therapeutic activities, your teen will experience a variety of approaches to support them.
