We’re proud to announce we’re bringing Newport Academy’s #teenmentalhealth resources to #utah with the opening of our first residential treatment center later this summer. In a 2020 survey, Utah was ranked number 32 out of the 50 states in youth mental health indicating that youth in Utah have higher prevalence of #mentalillness and lower rates of access to care. We want to help change that!⁠

We’re grateful for the opportunity to extend our mission of empowering teens and restoring families to Utah. Not located in Utah? We offer programs nation-wide. Head to the link in our bio to learn more.⁠

This past weekend we celebrated our country’s #independence, and just like our forefathers put rules and structure to support our country’s independence and make sure our nation thrives, so do teens need structure and #rules to do the same. ⁠

The adolescence years can be difficult for both #parents and teens as teens fight to develop more independence while parents struggle to set appropriate teen boundaries.⁠

Click on our #linkinbio to learn about the connection between mental health and executive functioning and how to set rules for teens and help them embrace them.

Today we are celebrating #internationalyogaday. The contemplative practice of yoga brings focus to mind, body, and spirit, where the roots of anxiety, disconnection, and depression intersect. Researchers theorize that mindful movement and breathing done in yoga activates the relaxation response. The exercise moves us out of the sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) and into the parasympathetic nervous system—“rest and digest.” In addition, it encourages self-reflection within a supportive group setting, and promotes an optimistic outlook on life. ⁠

Here at @newportacademy, certified instructors facilitate our yoga program, which includes up to six classes per week. To learn more about this and our other experiential therapy modalities, click our #linkinbio.

In a 2020 national survey conducted by @trevorproject, 46% of LGBTQ youth respondents reported they wanted psychological or emotional counseling from a mental health professional but were unable to receive it. We want to help change that! ⁠

As the preeminent provider of #teenmentalhealth treatment, we are committed to raising awareness and making mental healthcare more accessible. That’s why, during #gaypride month, we’ve partnered with The Trevor Project for our #smashthestigma campaign, raising money for their mission to provide support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs.⁠

We will be matching all donations to this campaign up to $13,000. Learn how you can support the cause and help us #meetourmatch by clicking our link in bio.

As the leading mental healthcare facility for teens and young adults, our mission is to create conversations and provide education on mental health issues facing teens, young adults, and their families.⁠

This year, we are honored to offer a matching grant of up to $13,000 for every dollar donated towards Trevor’s mission to provide free, confidential suicide prevention & crisis intervention programs to LGBTQ youth at risk. Join us and help us #meetourmatch! ⁠

May is #borderlinepersonalitydisorder awareness month. Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in young adults is often misdiagnosed because its symptoms can mimic other personality disorders and mental health challenges such as depression, anxiety, substance use disorder, bipolar disorder, or PTSD.⁠

Furthermore, the suicide rate among those with BPD is 50x that of the general population, particularly because younger patients who struggle with BPD often see the world in only black and white. ⁠

Early detection and treatment can make all the difference! Click on our #linkinbio to learn the warning signs.

1 in 6 US teens has a mental health disorder, 1 in 3 teens will meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18, almost 14% of teens have reported suffering from at least one major depressive episode in the past year.⁠

60% of those teens do not receive any consistent mental health treatment due to stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health issues.⁠

In honor of #mentalhealthawarenessmonth @newportacademy is honored to partner with @trevorproject to help raise awareness around mental health with our #smashthestigma campaign. We will be matching donations given to the campaign, up to $13,000 in an effort to achieve our goal of $26,000, to benefit @TrevorProject’s mission to end suicide among LGBTQ youth by providing support through free and confidential suicide prevention and crisis intervention programs. ⁠

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, teen anxiety and depression rates are rising steeply. In fact, 7 out of every 10 teenagers are struggling with their mental health right now, and 17% of high school students have seriously considered suicide. Even today the stigma around mental health issues persists and prejudice and discrimination against people with mental illness is still very much a problem.⁠

This year we are proud to stand with @TrevorProject to help raise awareness and #smashthestigma surrounding mental health and suicide ideation. Stay tuned during #mentalhealthawarenessmonth, more details to come! 🙈
