BEHAVIORAL HEALTH

TEEN THERAPY

Even your best employees will struggle at work if there are struggles at home. This is especially true for employees whose kids are suffering from mental, behavioral or emotional challenges. Sadly, mental health issues in children and teens are skyrocketing, but options for care are severely limited.

THE ISSUE

— The last decade has seen a drastic increase in mental health disorders in children and teens.

Depression among adolescents increased 52% between
2005 and 2017
, according to the American Psychological
Association.

— According to the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services, one in five adolescents has a diagnosable mental health disorder, and nearly one in three show signs of depression.

Research consistently shows that parents of children with mental health issues experience psychological distress.

HOW IT WORKS

Parents can schedule a 25- or 50-minute session with a therapist in as few as 24 hours (vs. weeks or months). This is critical for kids in crisis.

Sessions take place via phone, computer or mobile device. This format works well for adolescents who are often more comfortable with virtual versus in person visits.

Parents take part in the first session (with the option of participating throughout treatment).

The therapist designs a detailed treatment plan with specific benchmarks and frequent check-ins to ensure the treatment is effective.
