When someone's in trouble in a pool, you throw them a lifeline.

When your teen is struggling, Lifeline Utah is there to help them!

Lifeline Utah Clinic Director Dan Scholz says they treat teens, typically 14 to 17 years old, who are struggling with mental health or substance abuse issues.

They have a goal of treating the entire family, not just the individual.

Scholz says the staff is specially trained in trauma, whether it's physical, mental or sexual abuse that's affecting them. They also help teens who have witnessed sad tragedies in their life or even death.

Lifeline Utah isn't "old school" therapy, it's powerful cutting-edge therapy used in a very specific way.

Scholz says 2020 was a rough year for everyone, but there are signs parents should watch out for that could signal a teen needs help. Those include: aggression, lashing out, suicidal tendencies, going to the hospital because of self-harm or even just not acting like themselves.

If Lifeline Utah isn't the right place to help, they will try to help you find the right place for your family.
