Accreditation, Licensing, & Affiliations

Our innovative approach to mental healthcare earns accolades from press around the world, but it is our dedication to our client success that has helped us achieve accreditation from The Joint Commission, exceed licensing standards of care, and nurture affiliations with the following:

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! 🙈

Since social distancing began last March, the rate of teenage video game addiction has been steadily rising, with at least 70% of kids under 18 on consoles. With remote schooling and limited activities outside the home, teens are using gaming for a distraction to combat loneliness and isolation.⁠

We’re proud to announce we’re bringing Newport Academy’s #teenmentalhealth resources to the Los Angeles area with the opening of residential treatment centers in northwest Los Angeles. 64% of California teens with depression don’t receive the care they need, which has only been exacerbated by the #COVID19 pandemic.⁠

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

Today, on International #transdayofvisibility, we recognize and celebrate trans & non-binary people around the world. Trans and non-binary youth are still one of the most vulnerable minority groups. According to a @trevorproject 2020 survey, 52% of transgender and non-binary youth reported having considered suicide and 21% reported attempting suicide. At @newportacademy we are committed to providing a safe environment regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity to everyone.

“I can be in control of my words so that I can most effectively communicate with my teen.”
