What to Expect at Our Teen Support Groups for Mental Health
Have you been wondering if a support group would be right for your teen? Before you send your child to a teen support group, do you want to be sure it’s the right fit? Here at Insight Treatment, our teen support groups are designed to make teens feel as safe and supported as possible. We’ve found that it makes it possible for them to open up about everything that they’re going through so as to find the best way forward.
Many teens who are struggling may feel like they can’t express themselves, that they can’t be truly honest about what they’re feeling for fear of being judged. We made our groups to address exactly that, so that teens can feel free from criticism, judgment, and more so that they’ll be able to be open and honest. That, in turn, can lead to them not feeling so isolated and alone, seeing that other teens are dealing with concerns just like theirs. This can help with building social skills, self-confidence, coping skills, and so much more.
How Our Teen Support Groups are Run
The trained professionals who run our support groups have years of experience, so they know how to make a group as well as an environment where teens can open up. To that end, they put everyone who joins the group at ease, while making sure that the group is empathetic and respectful. Moreover, they can keep the group on track, enforcing boundaries while making sure that all who want to participate are encouraged to do so. There are groups like this at every Insight Treatment.
More Than a Group, a Community
For support groups to be helpful, of course, they have to be in an environment where teens feel safe. That’s just one of the reasons that we’ve designed each Insight Treatment to essentially function as a kind of clubhouse. Here, teens will find video games, foosball, even in some cases a climbing wall, a guitar, and so forth. But, more importantly, they’ll find other teens. Insight Treatment is not a treatment center with a “teen wing” or something. No, each Insight Treatment is devoted solely and exclusively to the treatment of teenagers. That way, teens have a treatment that’s always right for them.
An Open Door
Support groups are an important part of everything that we do. However, they’re far from the extent of our treatment. Individual therapy, customized treatment plans, group excursions, school support, family support groups, and so much more – here at Insight Treatment, we create a treatment plan for every teen who comes through our doors. Moreover, we don’t just treat the teen’s mental health struggles, we treat the underlying causes. That way, they can have what it takes to cope with challenges, today as well as tomorrow.
