MARS provides specialized counseling for children, adolescents and parents who are dealing with a childhood diagnoses such as ADHD, learning disabilities, depression, anxiety, among others. This service helps improve quality of life by teaching academic and life skills, helping understand and alleviate negative emotions, helping families learn to provide better support, and providing informed advice to help with daily difficulties.
Children and adolescents living with cognitive or psychological difficulties (e.g., ADHD, learning disabilities, anxiety, depression, among others) face specific challenges, uncertainty about the future, and daily frustrations. Sometimes these challenges seem overwhelming and never ending. With proper diagnosis and interventions, these challenges do not have to detract from your child’s quality of life or undermine their academic functioning. We are all challenged in different ways. The key to overcoming these challenges is learning what we are capable of (e.g., assessing our strengths and weaknesses), what we need help with (e.g., specifying accommodations), and how to live happily and thrive with our present abilities. MARS Memory-Health Network provides specialized counseling to teach children, adolescents and their families to reach these goals.
Children and adolescents transitioning from inpatient treatment settings have unique challenges. MARS has specialists whose expertise is counseling children and teens who are dealing with that transition.
Parenting is rewarding but hard, and it can be even harder when our children struggle. MARS Memory-Health Network provides specialized counseling for children as well as their parents, equipping them with the skills they need to help their children thrive and to thrive themselves. At MARS we know that a little bit of training, support, and skills can have a big impact on quality of life, and we are committed to helping you and your family.
