Learn how to help a teenage with depression

Develop vital coping and emotional regulation skills

  Teenage depression has become increasingly common in the United States, yet most teens do not receive the treatment they need. Left untreated, depression can result in serious and long-term mental and physical problems that affect every area of your child’s life.


A safe & supportive place to heal

Avery’s House is a teen mental health treatment home. Our specialized professionals work with adolescents to evaluate, diagnose, & support various mental health conditions, including depression. We provide a non-judgemental, LGBTQA+-friendly environment where teens can safely begin or continue their treatment.

The signs of teen depression aren’t always obvious

Depression does not look the same for everyone. In many cases, it’s wrongfully dismissed as mood swings associated with adolescence. Although only a clinician or mental health professional can test for and diagnose teenage depression, parents/guardians are often in the best position to spot early warning signs and get help for their kids. Knowing the signs could help your teen to avoid a downward spiral.
