The teenage years are a challenging time. Teens are almost adults, but still live at home. Their bodies are growing and changing, but they still have a curfew.

According to the Minnesota Department of Health, “From 2016 through 2020, there were more than 10,000 hospital visits for self-harm injuries (i.e., suicide attempts) in Minnesota, and those were mostly among people ages 10-24, predominantly females.” But recent research has shown that dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) is effective for treating teens with self-harming and suicidal tendencies.
There are few things like feeling sand squish between your toes, while you listen to the gentle crash of waves. The ocean shore is a place of rest, relaxation and natural beauty.

Sleep issues are common for children and adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). People with ADHD often have a hard time focusing, sitting still or quieting their body. It’s no wonder that they then may have trouble falling or staying asleep. Not getting enough sleep can affect your mood, weaken your immune system, disrupt your metabolism and cause problems with memory and concentration. The good news is there are also many ideas to help children and adults with ADHD sleep better.
