Mental Health Services for Adolescents & Children

The adolescent years are crucial as it’s the formative time for developing social and emotional habits that are necessary for good mental health. Mental health services for adolescents focus on instilling healthy approaches to challenging situations. The potential impact on teenagers’ mental health increases with the number of risk factors they are exposed to, and adolescence is a particularly stressful time with peer pressure and identity exploration. The quality of their interactions with their family and friends are significant influence as well.

Addiction, eating disorders, emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, and self-harm are just a few examples of how underlying mental health problems can manifest. An adolescent’s capacity to engage in daily activities is impaired, and their health is compromised. Our children’s mental health services work to address root causes, manage symptoms, and help your child to recover.

Types of adolescent & children's mental health therapies

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), an action-focused method of children’s mental health therapy. Young patients learn to recognize emotions instead of denying and struggling with them. With this comprehension, they can confront and embrace their challenges, and resolve to adjust their behavior and reactions as needed.

Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)

CBT is a pragmatic and highly structured form of children’s mental health therapy. The therapist works with the child to identify and resolve issues that are negative and harmful. Therapy works through each component that causes distress such as emotions, actions, and thoughts.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

Children and teens who struggle to control powerful emotions may benefit from this intensive, structured type of children’s mental health therapy. To help children understand and accept challenging emotions, DBT combines mindfulness exercises with CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), which shows them how to alter their feelings and actions.

Children and adolescent mental health treatment

Adolescent mental health services encompass a repository of techniques and approaches in the protection and psychosocial care of children and teenagers who suffer from serious psychiatric, emotional, behavioral, or developmental issues.

For young patients and their families, this service offers specialized outpatient and inpatient mental health treatments, including assessment, a range of combined therapies, and education. Additionally, it offers advice and liaison services to general practitioners, educational institutions, and important allied health and social service organizations.

Desde hace ańos la única molestia que tuve con Rudoy es que se me fue mi primera Doctora. A veces no es bueno pegarse mucho de las personas. Ya no quería otro Doctor. Unos meses después decidí volver y estoy igual que con mi 1ra Doctora, feliz y satisfecha. También me gusta la televisitas que ellos tienen disponible, en otra palabra a remoto, videos llamadas o audio llamadas. Ellos son rápidos y flexibles en tu horario de preferencia, para hacer o rehacer una cita son bien rápidos y eficientes. Ellos son bien profesionales y respetuosos en todo momentos. Grandemente recomiendo Rudoy. For so many years the only complain I had with Rudoy was that my first Doctor was gone. Sometimes isn’t good to get to attach to others. I refused to accept any other Doctors. But few months later I decided to come back try, I did get a great Doctor and I feel as much happy and stable and satisfied as before. I like the televisits, video calls or audio calls they have available. They are prompt to schedule or reschedule an appointment, they are very professional and respectful at all times. Highly recommend Rudoy Medical.

I had a great experience on my 1st appt with the psychiatrist Stacey Mitchell, she was comfortable to talk to and she was very professional and seemed interested in knowing why I was seeking your Dr's. I am pleased to have found your offices and your Drs.. I would definitely recommend Stacey and the group of professionals that work for Rudoy medical.
