Common Mental Health Issues in Teens
Anxiety disorders are common among teenagers and young adults, often presenting as persistent and severe worries, irritability, agitation, difficulty concentrating, and restlessness. Feelings of doom or danger may also be experienced by those with anxiety disorders. At Ridge RTC, we specialize in treating anxiety disorders, providing young people with a safe environment to manage their symptoms and overcome the challenges associated with their mental health.
Personality disorders, often first appearing in adolescence, can create significant challenges to an individual’s social, emotional, and developmental well-being. Those affected by personality disorders frequently exhibit destructive patterns of thinking and behavior that can impact their daily lives and relationships.
It’s crucial to address these issues early on and provide the necessary support to help individuals navigate their challenges and work towards a healthier state of mind.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can be triggered by experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event such as physical assault, childhood abuse, sexual violence, threats involving weapons, accidents, or natural disasters. Symptoms of PTSD can develop within a month or even years after the event.
Common symptoms include intrusive memories, flashbacks, nightmares, and negative changes in cognition, thinking, and mood. It’s essential to seek professional help for individuals experiencing PTSD symptoms to ensure proper support and treatment, ultimately leading to improved mental health and well-being.
Depressive disorder is prevalent among young people and can arise from various factors, including changes or abnormalities in brain chemistry and past traumas. Children, adolescents, and young adults diagnosed with this disorder may benefit from antidepressant medications prescribed to help treat depression. Before resorting to medication, our rehab for teenage depression has proven to give adolescents the support they need to overcome depressive symptoms.
Bipolar disorder, formerly known as manic depressive disorder, is characterized by alternating manic and depressive episodes. The signs and symptoms of bipolar disorder can vary and may include mood swings, anxiety, anger, unwanted thoughts, sleep problems, aggression, and changes in weight, among others.
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a complex condition that varies in severity and manifestation, affecting emotional regulation and self-control. Teens and young adults with ADHD often face challenges in school and daily life. Managing ADHD typically involves a combination of medication, individual and family therapy, and the development of life skills.
Grief and loss, resulting from the death of a loved one or a traumatic event, can have a profound impact on teens and young adults. They may become emotionally stuck or withdrawn from their daily lives, experiencing anger, guilt, nightmares, depression, and apathy.
It’s essential to provide them with adequate support, understanding, and professional help to navigate through these challenging emotions and prevent long-term negative consequences.
Dual diagnoses refer to situations where a patient has multiple disorders simultaneously. This can involve having a combination of mental disorders. It’s essential for individuals with dual diagnoses to receive comprehensive and integrated treatment that addresses all aspects of their condition. With appropriate support from mental health professionals, patients can work towards recovery and achieve better overall well-being.
