Ascend Behavioral Mental Health Counseling For Teens

At Ascend Behavioral Health in Fresno, CA, we offer counseling sessions for teens who are grappling with mental health issues. We understand how much of a toll depression, anxiety, and other issues can have on teens, and we strive to be a beacon of hope. At Ascend, we offer an Intensive Outpatient Program that meets several times a week to provide support for teens. We also have traditional outpatient services, including individual therapy, family counseling, and couples therapy. If your teen is acting differently and showing signs of mental illness, contact the therapists at Ascend Behavioral Health today.

Who We Serve

It is Ascend’s mission to serve teens who are struggling with mental health conditions. Often times we serve those who need more help and assistance than their school, outpatient therapist, or families can support. When things get especially difficult in life, Ascend is here to be your beacon of hope. 


Typically, teens that find their home at Ascend are struggling with anxiety and/or depression. We often see that teens don’t present with “adult” symptoms of these disorders. They may be irritable and acting out, moody and argumentative, isolating and pushing others away, engaging in self-harm, using drugs or alcohol, or not seeming like themselves. When these concerns are present and they are interfering with school, family life, or friendships, it’s time to consider enrolling in Ascend’s Intensive Outpatient Program. 


While we are happy to help assess and refer, often times teens who are actively psychotic, have a developmental disorder, or have a severe eating disorder are better suited for programs who serve these specific disorders.
