Mental Health Treatment for Teens
When your teen is acting out, it can be concerning for your entire family. While the teenage years can be difficult for all teens, sometimes it can go beyond that. There are many mental health issues that your teen may be dealing with, including diagnoses like depression, anxiety, trauma or bipolar disorder and related issues like school refusal. For teens, these issues can become a roadblock for their daily lives and may lead to other co-occurring issues.
Every teen with a mental health diagnosis deserves support and the multi-faceted professional treatment they need. Every teen is dealing with a unique set of clinical needs and so we meet them where they are. At our teen mental health treatment programs, we utilize a combination of therapies, process groups and therapeutic activities to provide the holistic treatment that leads to long term growth and recovery.

At Moriah, we understand the complex nature of mental health disorders and the struggle they can be for teens and adolescents. Our goal for each person that comes to our programs is for them to gain the skills and knowledge they need to leave stronger, happier, and healthier. We help struggling teens develop the strength to effect real change in their lives.
We provide more than just treatment. While the clinical needs of each client drive treatment, we support the person as a whole. Our teen mental health treatment programs are fully supported, safe environments where teens can be free to reflect on and work through their issues.
We support teens during the treatment process and beyond. Treatment at Moriah helps struggling teens move forward on their path to a healthier life and we provide resources even after treatment, through our Alumni program, to keep that momentum.
Depression is more than moments of sadness. It affects how you feel as well as how you think and act. It causes deep feelings of sadness or loss of interest over longer periods of time.
Trauma is a response to experiencing very stressful, scary, or distressing events. Trauma can be emotional and/or phsycial and can be the result of widely varied events.
Bipolar disorder is a disorder that causes changes in the mood, energy, and functioning of teens. They experience intense emotional states that can last days or weeks.
When your teen has issues going to school or staying in school, there can be a number of reasons. School refusal is the result of overwhelming emotions that your teen may be experiencing.
Anxiety disorder symptoms can come on suddenly, are often repeated, and can interfere with your teen’s daily life. They often include fears about school, family, health or social relationships.
Self-harming, also called self-injury, include any type of behavior where a teen intentionally harms themself. This behavior is an unhealthy way of attempting to cope with feelings.
Social issues can include body image and self-esteem concerns, as well as social anxiety or complex family issues. These are diagnoses that can cause your teen to struggle daily.
