The intensive outpatient therapy program, now in its eighth year, is designed for young people ages with significant anxiety or depression or other symptoms related to a mental health condition. Together with our partners we can increase awareness about adolescent mental health and provide hope for teens and families throughout California. The growing need for teen mental health services and the positive impact of the program encouraged hospital leaders to work together to make the ASPIRE program available to more youth throughout the state. ASPIRE provides structure and training in mental wellness skills, which help young people learn and implement healthy coping strategies.
Victims of teen dating violence are more likely to experience adverse health behaviors and outcomes in young adulthood, according to a study published in the January issue of Pediatrics released online Dec. Compared to adolescents reporting no dating violence, teen girls who were victimized by a boyfriend were more likely to engage in smoking and heavy drinking, and to experience symptoms of depression and thoughts of suicide five years later. Teen boys victimized by a girlfriend reported increased anti-social behaviors and suicidal thoughts, and were more likely to use marijuana five years later. Both males and females who were in aggressive relationships as teens were two to three times more likely to be in violent relationships again as adults, compared to teens who experienced no dating violence during their adolescent years. Study authors recommend that pediatricians and adolescent health care providers ask their patients if they are experiencing dating violence, so that those who are being victimized are linked quickly with needed prevention programs and treatment.
