The #1 Social Skills Training & Mental Health For Teens

We Help Treat Adolescent Mental Health Through Specialized positive living strategies.

Put a Stop to Teenage Emotional & Mental Health Concerns

There are thousands of teenage depression stories. Many of those stories have tragic endings. But what is the reason behind it? As it turns out, stress.

The modern world is a stressful one, especially for teenagers. They are faced with the challenge of learning about life and are figuring out who they are. In fact, statistics show that about one-third of teenagers suffer from emotional and mental health issues.

To help fight these problems, many teenage depression treatment centers are cropping up. However, many of these centers treat the symptoms instead of treating the root cause of teenage stress.

Healthy U has created a program based on teaching emotional intelligence and life skills to teenagers. With these skills, we help them fight substance abuse, beat emotional and mental health issues, to succeed socially.

Reach out to our team to learn how Healthy U could help your teen to take control of their life and start feeling like themselves again.

Our Approach

What To Expect In Treatment

At Healthy U, we have a five-step process to help teenagers get social skills and improve their mental health.

Step One: Get In Touch

To get started with your teenager’s positive living strategies program, you will need to get in touch with the team at Healthy U. We are available by phone, email, or contact form, giving you multiple ways to get in touch with us and get your teen’s treatment started.

From there, we will help you set up an initial appointment during which your teen will come in and speak with one of our therapists or professionals to learn more about how our positive living strategies program can help.

Step Two: Skill Assessment

At the first appointment, we will sit down and help your teenager with an assessment of any impairments or specific skill deficits in his or her social intelligence. Typically, a therapist will ask about challenging social interactions or skills which the teen has difficulties with.

This helps us to identify specific target areas for your teenager’s individualized treatment and care. Since everyone has different needs and challenges, we make sure to do a comprehensive assessment so that we can provide treatment that is truly relevant to your teenager’s daily life encounters.

Step Three: Create a Game Plan

Once the skills assessment is completed and we have a clear idea of what our target areas are, we will get started crafting a collaborative treatment plan. We will begin introducing your teenager to methods for improving his or her social skills.

We tend to keep each session to one focus area so as not to overwhelm our clients. We want to make sure that everyone who comes to our treatment center is set up for ongoing success with their mental health recovery.

From there, we will help you set up an initial appointment during which your teen will come in and speak with one of our therapists or professionals to learn more about how our positive living strategies program can help.

Step Four: Modeling & Practice

After we create your teenager’s game plan, it is time for us to get started with our work. We will have therapists model behaviors and skills and help break down complex conversations and social skills. We will go over verbal and nonverbal behaviors, helping teens to feel comfortable with all kinds of social situations.

On occasion, we will assign homework so that your teenager can keep practicing his or her new skills and can make improvements even when he or she is not in the treatment center.

This helps us to identify specific target areas for your teenager’s individualized treatment and care. Since everyone has different needs and challenges, we make sure to do a comprehensive assessment so that we can provide treatment that is truly relevant to your teenager’s daily life encounters.

Step Five: Check-In and Follow Up

Once the skills assessment is completed and we have a clear idea of what our target areas are, we will get started crafting a collaborative treatment plan. We will begin introducing your teenager to methods for improving his or her social skills.
