A Note from Jan
Founder of Doorways 
Dear Friend of Doorways,
As the end of the year fast approaches, we wanted to take a minute and say, "thank you" for trusting Doorways to provide hope and healing for your families in 2017.

It was over 9 years ago that Doorways opened its doors with just me, one therapist, and Trina, our office manager.  
Today it's Trina and I and over 20 additional employees! In October we made our move into a much bigger space. 
We've estimated that we've been able to help over 6,000 families get help for their struggling teens and young adults. 
As we look back over our blessings in the last year, we are lucky to count you as a big part of them. You have helped us get where we are today, with the ability to help even more hurting families in Phoenix.
If there's something we can help you with, please let us know. If you want to give us feedback, we always appreciate it.  Thank you for supporting Doorways. 
We are grateful for you this Christmas Season,

Jan Hamilton, MS, PMHNP-BC
Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner

Seasonal Changes and the Impact on Teen Mental Health

A s the days get shorter during the winter months, some teens find that they experience heightened fatigue as well as depression. Then as the days start to get longer and spring arrives they find those symptoms dissolve and they once again feel back to their usual selves. 

This form of depression is known as Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Why does this happen and what can a parent do about it?

When we think about the holidays, we instantly think about making family memories. As your child hits adolescence, gone are the days of visiting Santa at the mall, writing wish lists to send to the North Pole, and waking up at the crack of dawn to see what Santa has delivered. What about the annual trip to see the Nutcracker, making cookies with Grandma, and driving around to see the lights?

 Are the days of enjoying these activities with your teen gone as well? Should you let your teen not participate in these activities if they don't want to? Well, it might not be a bad idea. 

You may have pretended not to notice how your teenager's eyes rolled when you pulled out the holiday decorations.  You may have chosen to ignore their reluctance to participate in any family activity that isn't directly related to them receiving presents.  You may be struggling to remain happy and jolly when it seems as if your teenager would rather spend their time anywhere but with you and your family.   

Here are some great ways you can re-connect with your teenager this holiday season and ensure that everyone is feeling merry and bright.
