Inpatient Mental Health Hospital for Teens
Adolescence is a time of growth, change and self-discovery. It is a time when teens learn to be independent and responsible. For many young people, the challenges of adolescence, the stress of peer pressure and natural changes in body chemistry can intensify mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, mood instability (bipolar disorder) and substance use.
Friends Hospital provides teenage mental health treatment and support to individuals ages 13 to 17 so they can begin to identify these challenges, better handle frustrations and develop constructive, healthy behaviors.
Our teen mental health hospital-led inpatient program takes place on a dedicated adolescent unit with separate wings for males and female patients.
Every patient receives a confidential assessment that helps us determine the available resources most appropriate to address their needs. We also offer family members the opportunity to learn about their teen’s symptoms and develop skills they may use to help their teen through difficult times.

Mental Illness and Teens
Adolescent mental health disorders are on the rise, and adolescent psychiatric care for teens can help slow the tide of a growing health crisis.
The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that one in seven 10-19 year olds all over the world experiences a mental health disorder — that’s nearly 13% of all mental health disorders occur in teens and adolescents.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), over half of individuals who experience a mental illness in their lifetime began seeing symptoms before the age of 14. The earlier your loved one receives treatment at a mental hospital for teens the earlier that their mental health issues can be addressed.
The statistics show that mental health illnesses in adolescents are a growing concern. It is important to find a psychiatric facility that is equipped with the right treatment programs to help teens during a psychiatric crisis that requires around-the-clock care at a psychiatric hospital for teens.
Inpatient mental health treatment at a psychiatric hospital that offers behavioral health services for teens, such as Friends Hospital, can get to the root causes of the mental health problems and provide a structured environment for your loved one to move forward.
