Where Families Find Support & Solutions

TSS: Educational Solutions For Depressed Teenagers

The School Solution has years of experience helping families with the admissions process to private a wide variety of schools and programs including boarding and therapeutic school. We can assist both young adults and teenagers who have challenges – learning, psychological, emotional or behavioral- with placement in academic therapeutic programs, wilderness therapy programs, and other inpatient programs, even the ones that are from the safety of your home these days.  Every child, teenager and young adult deserves the most ideal environment in which to develop, learn and grow and thrive. Finding the right path to success for a child is one of a parent’s most important decisions, and almost every family needs help in navigating the many educational opportunities available today.

At The School Solution we know from years of experience that children placed in the right school or program become psychologically safe and more readily available to learn, heal and grow.

There is a close link between teenage depression and serious issues with school, relationships and even suicide, making the awareness about the risks of depression of critical importance. It has become vital for parents to learn to recognize the signs of teenage depression, and to seek proper care. One of the biggest signs of depression is school refusal. Other signs may be the inability or reluctance to wake up and get dressed in the mornings, especially with home schooling. Frequent requests for a doctor appointment, or frequent complaints of physical pain and sickness like headaches, stomachaches, nausea, or diarrhea and anxiety are all signs of depression and cause for concern. Since the largest amount of their daily activities these days is about getting schoolwork done, having the best school placement, and treatment for depressed teenagers is of paramount importance.

If you are the parent of a depressed teen you may feel exhausted, frightened and hopeless, however it is not time to give up. There are so many options with unique therapeutic and educational approaches; somewhere there is a place for every child to succeed. The School Solution can find that place.
