Teen Mental Health in Fresno, CA

At Ascend Behavioral Health, we are committed to serving teens in Fresno, CA, with our mental health services. Mental health symptoms can range and affect our social abilities, energy levels, and much more. Our therapists have a deep understanding of mental health in teens and how to improve a teen's quality of life. We are committed to helping teens overcome obstacles in their lives so that they can succeed and continue to grow and heal. We offer an Intensive Outpatient Program, along with traditional outpatient counseling sessions, which can guide teens on the pathway to healing. 

Mental health conditions can make it difficult for teens to thrive in everyday activities. We teach teens about the different symptoms of anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and other mental health conditions. Our sessions include both educational guides and group therapy sessions as well. If you suspect that your teen is grappling with obsessive worry, anger, depression, alcohol abuse, or more, our therapists can provide hope. You are not alone in this, and we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of mental health counseling.

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. 




We hope that everyone is staying safe during these times. 


We are fully operational and have implemented video group therapy to continue delivering our quality services, all in the the comfort of your own home.
