The rate of substance abuse, tech addiction, depression, and other mental health conditions among teens is on the rise.
Adolescent girls and boys experience anxiety and insecurities that can stem from social media, the family dynamic, pressure to succeed, challenges in authentic connections, body image issues, and underlying trauma.
Common issues we treat include:
Anxiety, ADHD and ADD, Suicidal Ideation, Depression, Trauma-Related Disorders, Self-harm, Addictions, Emerging Personalities, Reactive Attachment Disorder, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder
Treated as an Individual
The Shelterwood Team approaches each teen in our care as an individual – uniquely gifted and purposed in this life. We don’t categorize kids by labels and diagnoses, but rather work to help them uncover their unique awesomeness waiting to be revealed.
Using researched-based clinical interventions and core Christian values, we help students untangle the issues they are facing in their lives and relationships. This starts by developing trust and a sense of safety in their environment. When teens at Shelterwood recognize they are loved and surrounded by a team of adults committed to their success, they can begin their journey toward wholeness and health. Through life-on-life daily interactions, teens begin to identify new ways of thinking and operating. With this new mindset, teens can find their footing so they can stand firm in the truth of who they were created to be.
