Kids these days

They’re complicated, facing pressures and need more than love

Some things are too big, too heavy, too hard and too much for all of us, including our kids. There’s nothing simple or automatic about growing up and understanding one’s self—most of us work at it our entire lives. At MHS, we tailor DBT to fit young people and your young person. It’s not DBT-lite, it’s DBT-appropriate.

We separate our adolescent DBT program by two age groups:

Parenting and teen-ing aren’t easy, we can help.

Resources for caregivers

Caregiver Newsletter

MHS sends out periodic newsletters to support any family parenting teens with mental illness, not just our clients. Our goal is to share information about DBT, upcoming events, and tips for parenting teens with mental illness. If you would like to receive these newsletters, sign up below:

Caregiver Education Nights

Starting in early 2023, Mental Health Systems will offer monthly caregiver education nights for families parenting teens with mental illness. We will cover topics such as:

  • encouraging effective behaviors
  • validation
  • boundaries
  • encouraging healthy technology use

Similar to the newsletter, this resource is not limited to our clients. If you are interested in attending a caregiver education night, please check back on this webpage later or sign up for the newsletter above to be alerted when registration opens.

DBT brings relief

For those experiencing intense emotions, unmanagable distress, and relationship difficulties. DBT is an evidence-based treatment that provides effective coping skills to manage depression, anxiety, and other emotion-based difficulties.

Early Adolescent DBT

We provide Dialectical Behavior Therapy for children as young as 12 years old. Taking action early can make a positive impact on development.

Adolescent DBT

Our adolescent Dialectical Behavior Therapy is for young people 14-18 years old. When typical teenage difficulties become too much, we can help.
