The clinical team at Johnstown Heights Behavioral Health offers behavioral treatment for adolescent girls age 13 to 17.
Helping an adolescent get the treatment they need for mental health issues can be challenging. Parents and caregivers may find the process of seeking help to be overwhelming, not only because of concern for the adolescent, but because of their own emotions as well.
Johnstown Heights Behavioral Health makes this process easier by offering psychiatric services specifically designed for patients between the ages of 13 and 17. Our inpatient treatment options are available for female adolescents who are admitted both voluntarily or involuntarily and includes immediate assessment, diagnosis, and rapid stabilization of acute psychiatric symptoms.
Why Johnstown Heights?
Our structured, safe, and therapeutic environment includes a multidisciplinary clinical team, led by a skilled psychiatrist, that focuses on each patient’s specific needs.
This team approach, made up of our staff and the adolescent’s caregiver, ensures a smoother transition to less intensive care and support. We work closely with appropriate family members, care providers, and community agencies on discharge planning, follow-up care, and ongoing treatment options.

Comprehensive Behavioral Health
Adolescent girls’ behavioral health encompasses a wide range of emotional, psychological, and social aspects that influence their overall well-being. Understanding and addressing these factors are crucial for supporting healthy development during this transitional phase of life.
Addressing the behavioral health of adolescent girls requires a comprehensive and holistic approach that involves parents, schools, healthcare professionals, and the broader community.
