Aspire Academy is a “High Needs Mental Health Program” for adolescent females ages 12-17. Most of our clients are in DHS/DCFS/JJS custody of the State of Utah who require intensive psychiatric, behavioral, medical, and other structured rehabilitative interventions as well as continuous monitoring.

Typical problem areas addressed include: family disruption, self-harm, suicidal behaviors, running away, multiple placements, substance abuse, and a history of trauma (physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, domestic violence).
