Teen Safe Passage To A Behavioral Health Program
Marni Luther, Hired Power’s Intake Specialist, received an inquiry call from an Education Consultant regarding a family whose 15-year-old son was struggling with mental health and behavioral challenges. The inquiry was for Safe Passage assistance from the family’s home to a wilderness program in another state. During the initial conversation, Marni learned the teen was previously diagnosed with anxiety and depression and the family was working with local professionals for several years.
Reaching out to the family for further information and transition details, Marni learned additional information about the family dynamics within the home. It was shared that their son Jeremy’s* disposition showed acting out and resistant behaviors towards family, school, and professionals. At this point, it was clear they would benefit from the professional guidance of Hired Power’s Transitional Services team.
*The son’s name was changed to Jeremy for confidentiality purposes.
