Adolescence and Young Adulthood are unique and formative times and crucial periods for developing and maintaining social and emotional habits important for mental well-being. Emotional disorders commonly emerge during adolescence and often go undetected and/or untreated. At the Center for Emotional Wellness, we recognize that every individual has their own unique challenges. That’s why we firmly believe that successful treatment isn’t one size fits all. We use proven methods and therapies that, when combined create a well-rounded program that addresses the whole person.
Anxiety is a condition in which an individual experiences a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease in their everyday lives. This can manifest as panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, phobias, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Untreated adolescent anxiety can easily cause interference in everyday life as well as relationships.
Depression in teens is a mood disorder that affects many aspects of a person’s life. The disorder can manifest as symptoms of persistent sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest, as well as a lack of energy. Because everyone can experience these at times, symptoms must be consistent for a two-week period to be diagnosed with depression in adolescence.
Individual trauma can result from events or situations that cause emotional or physical harm to an individual. For many adolescents, this teen trauma can come from demands to school, bullying from peers, or family distress.
Teen and Young Adult trauma is not always easy to recognize or diagnose, as trauma does not need to be tied to or triggered by a specific event. While one kind of trauma can be tied to a specific event, others may result from multiple incidents that can’t always be pinpointed to specific instances.
Grief and Loss
Grief and loss is emotional suffering or distress caused by loss or regret. It’s typically used to refer to the feeling of sorrow and loss from the death of a loved one. With grief for adolescents and young adults, harm or distress may come from losing something or someone.
Relationship conflict is a disagreement between people that can cause significant stress. It can range from small disagreements to major differences in beliefs. These conflicts can be between your parents, siblings, teachers, or friends.
Learning the proper skills to discuss and process these conflicts is important. Long-term conflicts can cause severe stress, anxiety, and depression. Our therapists can show you proper conflict resolution skills and deescalate the conflict in a healthy and productive way.
Social isolation is when one feels like an outcast to society and may have lost sight of their self-worth. Because of these feelings, adolescents will cope by separating themselves from society and normal social interactions.
Mood Disorders or Swings
Mood disorders are general emotional states or moods that are distorted or inconsistent with circumstances and interfere with an individual’s ability to function. Teenage mood swings may be mood disorders, although the cause of adolescent mood disorders is not well known.
Inability to Focus
The inability to focus can heavily impact your life. Concentration difficulties can be related to difficulty staying awake, impulsiveness, intrusive thoughts or concerns, overactivity, or inattention. However, they can be caused by medical, cognitive, or psychological problems.
Difficulty Functioning at School
It can be both frustrating and disheartening when your adolescent is having trouble functioning at school. It is difficult for both the teen and young adult and their parents. Grades may slip, they may have trouble focusing or acting properly, and they may have less interest or worse performance in sports or other after-school activities.
There can be a lot of things going on in the mind of an adolescent and young adult that contribute to this problem. It can result from problems with family and friends, or just be the heightened emotions in general that teenagers experience.
The important thing to note is that treatment is possible and may help or alleviate the problem. It’s normal, and help is available, so you and your adolescent or young adult don’t have to struggle alone.
PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder)
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that is caused by experiencing a traumatic event or series of events. A diagnosis requires exposure to an upsetting traumatic event. However, the exposure could be indirect rather than firsthand.
This can stem from childhood traumas, bullying, natural disasters, or other events that disrupt the normal life of an adolescent or young adult. The impacts of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder can be incredibly disruptive to life and can cause the affected person to withdraw from things they previously enjoyed.
