Scientists have been exploring the link between exercise and mood for more than 100 years. As a result, they have produced a large body of research on physical activity and mental health.

In fact, research shows that sports and other types of physical activity can be equally as effective as medication in improving teen mental health and happiness levels.

Although physical activity is a healthy start, it may not be enough support for every adolescent. If lifestyle changes aren’t helping with symptoms of depression or anxiety, it’s essential to seek treatment before the problem escalates.

Identifying when a child or loved one is struggling and needs support can be tricky. Some physical trauma responses can be easily spotted, such as low energy, headaches, and digestive issues. However, nothing compares to having an open and honest dialogue that can start with a simple question: “How are you REALLY doing?”

We can begin by asking ourselves …. How am I doing? Pause for a second, take a deep breath, and share with us an emoji that speaks to how you’re feeling right now.

Happy New Year from Newport Academy! ...

The idea of entering #teentreatment for mental health during the holidays can be tough for both kids and parents to contemplate. We all want the holiday season to be a time of fun, celebration, and togetherness for our children and for the whole family. Starting the #treatmentprocess, which brings challenges along with rewards—particularly at the beginning—doesn’t fit into a traditional image of the #perfectholiday.⁠

Researchers are noticing a surprising “parallel pandemic”: a significant rise over the last 18 months in the number of teen girls and young women exhibiting verbal and physical tics. Since COVID began, females aged 12 to 25 around the world have been reporting the onset of these Tourette’s-like symptoms at unprecedented levels.⁠

Moreover, the social media app TikTok appears to play a part in triggering or exacerbating these behaviors. This correlation has become known as “#tiktoktics” or “TikTok Tourette’s.” However, these tics aren’t caused by Tourette’s syndrome, so what is the underlying reason for this strange phenomenon?⁠

Social media and technology have an upside and a downside. When it comes to the #socialmediaeffects on teens, both the pros and the cons are significant. In particular, social media and #teendepression are closely linked. Furthermore, overuse of apps exposes teens to #cyberbullying, #bodyimageissues, and #techaddiction, and results in less time spent doing healthy, real-world activities. ⁠

Research shows that the long-term effects of popularity in high school are neither all good nor all bad. While some studies show that having a wide #circleoffriends as a teenager is beneficial, it’s the quality of those relationships that matters most, not the quantity. In addition, striving for #socialcapital in the age of social media can have a significant #negativeimpact on well-being during adolescence.⁠

Today we observe Transgender Day of Remembrance. #TDOR was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith, to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998. This day provides a forum for transgender organizations, individuals, and allies to raise awareness of the threat of violence faced by #gendervariant people and the persistence of prejudice toward the transgender community. The @trevorproject 2021 survey emphasizes the importance of #LGBTQ affirming practices and living environments, as well as the importance of having a support network and being surrounded by people who respect one’s identity. According to the Trevor Project, trans and nonbinary youth whose households fully respect their pronouns are 50% less likely to attempt suicide than those whose pronouns are not respected.⁠

Today marks #NationalParentalInvolvementDay, an opportunity to honor and highlight the powerful contributions that parents and caregivers provide at school and at home to support student success. In order to progress academically, students need to be healthy, both physically and #emotionally. Nearly every parent and caregiver knows how to test whether a child has a fever—but do they know how to do a mental health temperature check? Trauma, depression, and anxiety can’t be measured with a thermometer, but there are ways to track how a teen is doing on an emotional level. ⁠

We’re proud to announce that both Newport Academy and our sister program @Newport_Institute are now providing compassionate, outcomes-driven care in Minnesota, serving teens, young adults, and families throughout the Midwest. ⁠

Young people in Minnesota are struggling with trauma, anxiety, depression, and loneliness. Nearly a quarter of 11th graders in the state have considered suicide. Yet fewer than 50% of youth here have received any treatment for their mental health issues. ⁠

We’re working to address this need in Minnesota and beyond its borders, providing specialized care for these critical stages of life. ⁠

Not located in Minnesota? We offer programs nationwide. 👆🏻👆🏼👆🏾👆 on our #linkinbio to learn more.
