Insight Treatment Teaming Up With Local Schools To Educate Parents And Teens On Mental Health

Insight Treatment is a mental health treatment center with locations in El Segundo, Santa Clarita, Pasadena, Van Nuys, Modesto, El Monte, and Merced. Insight is an intensive outpatient treatment center for teens and their families battling mental health issues, disconnection, addiction, and more. With priorities to heal whole families and establish those essential connections, Insight is working in local schools and organizations to spread awareness and decrease the stigma around mental health in teens.
This week on the Insight Teen Hour radio show on KHTS, CEO of Insight Treatment Frederik Schulin hosted and was joined by Insight coworkers Christian Lara and Elton Ferrero to talk about how Insight Treatment prioritizes mental health and education for the community. This show aims to help educate parents and teens in the greater LA County area, and introduce them to common problems and resources available in Santa Clarita.
Sometimes all parents need is a little advice on how to help their teen succeed, and sometimes teens need a reminder that they are not alone. Isolationism is a common struggle coming out on the other side of this pandemic, and many teens have struggled. That is why Christian Lara, Insight’s School Outreach Coordinator, partners with local schools and organizations.
Part of Lara’s job is to organize workshops, panels, and other educational resources to educate parents, students, and other school authority figures on teen mental health, parenting a teen, and the current trends with health and drugs. This information is essential to making informed decisions as a parent, and can greatly affect the parent-teen relationship.
With all the changes and moving targets parents, teens, and educators have had to face over the last few years, it can be hard to identify symptoms of mental health struggles or substance abuse, attributing them to normal teen lethargy or snark. Learn how to navigate these confusing times at these events.
Sometimes all parents need is a little advice on how to help their teen succeed, and sometimes all teens need is someone to bridge the gap between their inside thoughts and how to express them in a constructive way. The awesome staff and counselors at Insight want to see your family connected and enjoying a thriving parent-teen relationship.
