Who is a Sunrise Student?

Sunrise works with adolescent and teen girls, boys, and LGBTQ+ youths ages 13 – 17, who are smart, curious, and capable but struggle with deep-rooted emotional issues that have kept them from building a life worth living.

Many have experienced trauma, chemical dependency, or mental illness. Some are depressed or anxious, suffer from low self-esteem, or are troubled by eating disorders. These life-threatening and therapy-interfering behaviors can include, but are not limited to:

  • Suicidal ideation
  • Self-harm
  • Attachment issues
  • Family discord
  • Chemical dependency
  • Addictions
  • Disordered eating
  • Habitual lying
  • Impulsive/risky behaviors
  • School avoidance
  • Learning difficulties
  • Relationship problems
  • Low motivation

Despite having difficult issues that require healing and management, Sunrise students possess the internal resources for future success and independence. Whether a student comes to us from the United States or Internationally, Sunrise provides the space for our students to discover their core issues and help them translate new skills to the real world in order to find lasting healing.
