Does it seem like everything you’ve done to improve your teen’s mental health just isn’t working as you would like? Are you reticent about taking your teen to a place for teens that offers treatment? It’s natural to be hesitant, but it’s important to remember that one of the main benefits of taking your teen to a place for teen treatment is that there will be plenty of other teens around. Indeed, our teen support groups in the valley are some of our most popular and effective treatments. That’s true for plenty of reasons.
Boosting Social Skills While Understanding They Aren’t Alone
Adolescence is important for so many reasons, not the least of which is that it’s a time when someone can build social skills that can serve them their entire lives. If your teen is struggling with mental health concerns, that can make it all the more difficult. A support group with other teens will be a genuinely safe place, a place where your child can become comfortable with those their own age. Speaking of, they’ll see, in a real, impactful way, that they aren’t the only ones going through these issues as they’re surrounded by others working through the same struggles.
Building Confidence While Expressing Themselves
When teens see that others who have the same problems are making progress, and working towards leading healthier, happier lives, that can be greatly empowering. Alongside that, as teens see others advance, it can make them feel all that much more comfortable discussing their lives, their struggles, and more. A major part of what makes our groups a safe place is that everyone listens nonjudgmentally, they understand how difficult (and yet empowering) it can be to speak openly and honestly.
Better Understanding Others and Themselves
In our support groups, teens are each at different places in their journeys. Some are just starting out whereas others have been on the path for a while. So, when a teen sees someone else who was just in their shoes a few weeks ago, it can give them a greater insight into their own lives, and what they’re going through. Consequently, over time, as teen advances, they can help those who are where they just were. These support groups help teens discover just how rewarding it can be when you help someone else.
