There is a mental health crisis among teens and young adults. The US Surgeon General called the current situation “devastating” for youth and their families. Rates of depression, anxiety, and suicide are skyrocketing among this age group—there’s been a 65% increase in depression since 2010 and suicide is the second leading cause of death among 10-24 year olds. At least 1 in 5 teens is living with a mental health condition.
Growing up is hard enough without mental health struggles. It is critical that we find ways to identify and treat mental health problems in youth to avoid long-term consequences. Early detection, prevention, and intervention can make all the difference. The good news is that there are scientifically-proven ways to prevent and treat mental health problems among youth.
At Joon, our purpose is improving the mental health of adolescents. We are working to make evidence-based treatments accessible and engaging to teens, young adults, and their families. Our approach is unique in combining the best of live therapy sessions with a mobile app that includes opportunities to apply the skills learned in therapy to everyday life. We hire only experienced licensed therapists passionate about changing the lives of youth and train them further to deliver the high-quality Joon model of care.
And our clients say that Joon Care works! Some recent parent testimonials:
We regularly evaluate our therapeutic outcomes to ensure our model of care is effective and that clients are getting better.
One important indicator of good outcomes is recovery rate. Recovery means that clients who started Joon Care with high levels of depression or anxiety have gotten better, to the point that their depression or anxiety is back to a normal, subclinical range.
The vast majority of Joon clients recover from anxiety or depression after treatment.
Our results exceed those found in most studies of in-person therapy with 13-24 year olds.
