Adolescence can be a rocky time, and it's easy to understand why many teens struggle with stress and feeling overwhelmed. While it's natural to struggle from time to time, some mental health issues can signal a need for help:

  • Mood disorders
  • Self-harm
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Substance abuse

The After-School Program Intervention and Resiliency Education® (ASPIRE) is an intensive outpatient teen mental health program for adolescents ages 13-17 who are struggling with their mental and emotional health.

Through therapy, coping strategies and practice, teens develop a path for wellness – reducing the risk of turning to unhealthy or unsafe behaviors like substance use, self-injury and engagement with risky peers. ASPIRE uses a family-centered approach to support both teens and their parents through the program.
