Understanding Depression

Depression is a mental health condition that affects how a person feels, thinks, and handles daily activities. It can lead to a range of symptoms that vary in severity, including feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities that once brought joy. While there is no single cause for depression, certain factors can make it more likely to occur. These may include inherited traits, traumatic life events, genetics, biological factors, and certain medical conditions.

It’s impossible for those struggling with depression to simply break free of it using willpower. If left untreated, depression is likely to worsen and disrupt daily life. That’s why it’s so important to seek help when needed.

If you’re unsure if your teen or young adult would benefit from a depression treatment program, consider the following:

  • Is your child or young adult having difficulty functioning, either in school, at home, or in their social life?
  • Are they unusually sad, withdrawn, or anxious?
  • Are they having difficulty sleeping, eating well, or concentrating?
  • Have they developed any unhealthy coping strategies to deal with their depression, like drinking or drug use?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it might be time to talk to one of our licensed mental health professionals about our depression treatment services for teens and young adults.

How Our Depression Treatment Program Can Help

Our outpatient depression treatment program for young adults and teens focuses on helping clients manage their symptoms and develop the skills needed to cope with future challenges. Our evidence-based therapies are conducted by a licensed mental health professional working with each client to create an individualized treatment plan. This plan may include individual and group therapy, life skills coaching, and specific therapies.

For example, many of our clients benefit from trauma therapy. This helps them to process past traumatic events and learn new ways to cope with difficult emotions. We also offer family therapy to help parents and other family members learn how to support their loved one’s recovery.

Our program also includes holistic therapies, such as music therapy and meditation, which can relieve stress and help clients relax. The goal of treatment is to give each client the tools they need to lead a fulfilling life.
