Mood Disorders in Troubled Teens
There are many ways to tell if your troubled teen is struggling from mood disorders; a rapid change of emotion, a wide range of emotional responses to similar situations, easily angered, and constant depression and anxiety are just some of the symptoms. Residential treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools can provide a stable environment that can help the troubled teen to recover and overcome this problem. For more information on how residential treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools can help troubled teens that struggle with mood disorders please contact Zion’s Educational System by calling 866-471-8579.
Several of the symptoms listed above can also stem from post-traumatic stress disorder. The wide range of emotions could be from a traumatic experience that the troubled teen has not fully recovered from. The drastic change in emotions could show a history of emotional or physical abuse, drug or substance abuse, and mood disorders. Troubled teens don’t always feel safe discussing their past struggles with their authoritative figures, leaving those in authority to believe that their troubled teen has mood disorders.
How Treatment Centers Help Mood Disorders
Residential treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools address all of these issues and the licensed therapists can help determine which struggle the troubled teen is facing, or if it is more than one struggle.
Therapeutic elements for the troubled teens include equine therapy, group and individual therapy, and drug and substance abuse recovery programs. All of these elements help provide a well-rounded form of support for the troubled teen.
Therapeutic boarding schools and residential treatment centers hire the most qualified psychologists and therapists to work for them as to ensure the best possible help for troubled teens. For parents who aren’t sure what their troubled teen is struggling with, sending them to these residential treatment centers and boarding schools can help not only identify what the trouble teen is struggling to deal with, but also to find healing and a way to change the outward behaviors by changing the way the troubled teens look at things on the inside.
