Teen in mental health crisis: Any good resources?
Does ANYONE have good experiences to report about PHP, or possibly residential facilities for teens with an array of serious mood disorders? Especially anxiety, with misophonia and sensory processing disorder wreaking havoc on our lives. Body dysmorphic disorder, panic disorder, depression, eating disorder- and on top of that a new diagnosis of Hypermobile Spectrum Disorder, possibly Ehlers-Danlos.
I’ve reviewed countless facilities, including Rogers Behavioral (had great hopes for that one), Newport, just so many places and they all get horrible reviews. Many parents saying their kid was worse after the program, patients telling of neglect, abuse, inappropriate behavior of staff. I promised my daughter I’d never send her anywhere without first hand accounts of the treatment program.
We are so desperate, and it seems there is no place to turn. I don’t feel we can do residential when she has serious physical illness issues as well. She deals with chronic pain and fatigue; and we’ve been referred to the Mayo Pain Rehab program but they won’t accept her until she gets help for her mental state first! So very disappointing, she was looking forward to attending the program and now we have nothing 😢
