Learning From Anywhere: Teens On The Right track

In light of the very real issues with schools being closed and outside stressors, it can often be difficult to distinguish between the “normal” issue teens face and signs of a worsening mental health issue. Anxiety, depression, or other emotional problems and physical symptoms are very real issues that should not go unchecked. As educational consultants we have years of experience helping families through these situations, and helping teens to maintain or regain their mental health through behavior observation, asking the right questions, and listening to their answers. 

In some extreme situations when teens are suicidal or severely depressed, a residential treatment program may be the best option for them. Residential treatment programs offer around-the-clock care that can ensure the health and safety of your teen at all times. Therapeutic schools offer open enrollment year-round, and opportunities to catch up academically if need be. Unique academic structure often helps an adolescent who has previously struggled in school.

Karen Mabie is a certified educational consultant and board member of Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) who visits over 60 schools every year personally in order to evaluate the therapeutic and academic services they offer. She takes a comprehensive approach, interviewing family members, teachers, and treating professionals to determine your teens needs. This effective, thorough and passionate work has earned her the designation of “Certified Educational Planner,” the highest level of standards in professional educational consulting.
