Lifeline for Youth and Families is open and an essential part of the community.

They have been in Utah for 30 years helping countless families learn to communicate and get through trials together.

This uncertain time is no different. Budah talked with Clinic Director Dan Scholz about Lifeline during the pandemic. Scholz says they are continuing their residential in-house treatment for teens who need it. They are practicing social distancing and taking temperatures to keep everyone safe. Day treatment is being done on Zoom to minimize risk.

During the stressful time of COVID-19, people are reacting in different ways. It can be especially hard on kids who are social. Scholz says they're seeing an increase in depression, suicidal tendencies and substance abuse.

If you are worried about your child, call Lifeline at 801-936-4000 and someone on the team will help you decide if Lifeline is a good fit. If they're not, they'll help you find a good fit.
