Even though we were in a crisis situation, Karen was very enjoyable to work with.
At The School Solution we know from years of experience that when teenagers are placed in the right school or program they become psychologically safe and more readily available to learn, heal and grow.
Parents are reporting feeling pressured and confused about supporting remote schooling especially for depressed teenagers right now. They are wondering how to prepare and plan for what to do with schooling and treatment options for their depressed teenagers. There is a close link between teenage depression and serious issues with learning, school success, relationships and even suicide, making the awareness about the risks of depression of critical importance. Especially during the pandemic, it has become vital for parents to learn to recognize the signs of teenage depression, and to seek proper care. Everyone reacts differently to stressful situations such as the one our country is experiencing right now.
How teens respond to stress can depend on background, social support from family or friends, financial situation, health and emotional past, living situations and communities, and many other factors. The changes are affecting everyone but in particular depressed teenagers who were already in need of school solutions.
One of the signs of teenage depression is having issues with school. Other signs may be the inability or reluctance to wake up and get dressed in the mornings, frequent complaints of physical pain and sickness like headaches, stomachaches, nausea, or diarrhea and anxiety. Since the largest amount of their daily activities takes place-doing schoolwork, having the best school placement and plan of action for depressed teenagers is of paramount importance.
If you are the parent of a depressed teenager you may feel exhausted, frightened and hopeless, however it now is not the time to give up. There are so many options with unique therapeutic and educational approaches; somewhere there is a place for every depressed teenager to get help, to heal, to grow and to succeed.

Parents need to know that their options have been narrowed down to the best possibilities given the individual needs of their teenage son or daughter. There are hundreds of programs available with the help of Karen Mabie and The School Solution for depressed teenagers. As educational consultants we take the time to research/visit the programs, meet with the family and gather the existing data from the professionals working with the family so that our tailored choices can be offered. With these options families have the ability to make informed, specific decisions on geographic location, program/school type, differentiators between programs, and costs.
There are “ School Options” for depressed teenagers, from Supportive Schools, Boarding Schools to Therapeutic Schools & Treatment Centers. These schools vary widely in whom they serve and how they can best serve their students. Not every child feels safe and able to grow in a large public school. There are a wide range of boarding schools available; from large, highly competitive schools to small, specialized, nurturing schools, from junior high to post-graduate. There are a spectrum of programs; from highly clinical residential treatment centers to less structured therapeutic boarding schools with the majority falling somewhere in the middle. If you can find the right school, where your child feels valued, true growth can begin.
Our role as educational consultants is to bridge the gap between the educational perspective and the therapeutic perspective. The professional team at The School Solution is here for you to successfully treat teenage depression and help teens begin to desire to live life to the fullest!
