Recently, the WHO reported an updated worldwide statistic: 700,000 people die by suicide globally each year. For the last few years, that number was 800,000, proving that suicide prevention efforts are making a difference. However, the work is not done. The truth of this heartbreaking statistic is that for every 100 deaths, one will be by suicide.⁠

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.⁠

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.
