Young adults often experience pressure to attain perfection, which is portrayed endlessly on social media. As a result, they can struggle with their transition into adulthood, a phenomenon that is referred to as “a failure to launch.”
Malvern Behavioral Health understands that individuals aged 18 to 26 are facing things no generation has experienced and, as such, offers a therapeutic environment perfect for recovery at its 22-bed inpatient facility in South Philadelphia.
Malvern Behavioral Health is celebrating its first anniversary of helping young adults and their families struggling with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, trauma, and suicidal thoughts. Ninety percent of the young people treated are experiencing hospitalization for the first time. Members of the LGBTQ+ community are at greater risk. Malvern Behavioral Health is proud to provide an affirmative, inclusive, and safe environment for this community and about 30 percent of the young people treated are members of the LGBTQ+ community.
“We use a diverse range of treatment options to help these individuals address concerns with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, addictions, and executive functioning issues,” said Anne Marie Esposito, Malvern Behavioral Health’s Clinical Director.
By specializing its care and utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities, Malvern Behavioral Health focuses on key stressors that impact young adults, provides individualized treatment, and works with each person to develop proper support, skills, and education, so they can thrive in everyday life.
“This place to me was a second home,” said one patient. “I felt comfortable and welcome by all staff and peers. This place made me become a better man.”
The staff at Malvern Behavioral Health are experienced, passionate, and talented behavioral health professionals who take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment and focus on helping patients and their families process trauma and build a sustainable path of recovery.
“The staff here are phenomenal and provide excellent care,” said another patient. “They make sure you know you are loved and mean so much to the world. There isn’t one staff member that judged me or made me feel uncomfortable – they are friendly, funny, and down to earth. I’ve never felt alone.”
The staff at Malvern Behavioral Health “accepts the challenge of being the coaches, cheering squad, and role models of the hope, success, and life” for the young adults in their care, according to lead therapist Tinisha Scott.
“We work together as a team to provide quality and consistent care and concern for not only the mental, behavioral, and emotional health of our young adult population, but also their well-being as a person,” said Scott.
