Overview

Mental Health Services for Teens

Are you or someone you care about having unusual thoughts or difficulty concentrating, or hearing things that others don’t? These types of symptoms are more common than you may think – they affect 1 in 5 teens. If the symptoms have been persisting for an extended period of time or are increasing in severity, they may be among the first warning signs of early psychosis. That’s why it’s important to seek help as early as possible.
