At Fulshear, we understand how damaging depression can be for families… and we can help.
Our highly qualified staff treat young adult women struggling with mood and behavior disorders, including depression. We work through negative beliefs clients have about themselves and teach essential skills that help them lead more independent and individually fulfilling lives.
At Fulshear, we take a holistic approach to treatment by assisting our clients in discovering their personal values and helping them understand how those very individual standards can be used to navigate difficult personal and interpersonal issues. Using techniques that do more than correct or replace behaviors, our approach focuses on creating lasting change.
Fulshear’s mission is to help launch healthy, strong and influential women.
If you or someone you love is struggling with depression, please call. We are always available to provide information and answers. Please call 855-842-5593. We can help.
What should I do if I think my daughter is depressed?
It’s time to get help. Talk therapy is one of the best treatments for depression. Therapy can help your loved one feel safe enough to discuss painful emotions and thoughts. A therapist can also provide the tools to successfully manage those thoughts and emotions. Therapy can be short-term or long-term, depending on the individual’s needs.
Giving your support is of utmost importance. Be available to listen and give your undivided attention. Assure your child that you truly love and care about them. Also, helping your teen to do activities they enjoy can motivate them to work through difficult times.
What are the warning signs of suicide?
Depression carries the risk of suicide. If you suspect your daughter is suicidal and has expressed thoughts or talk of suicide and death or demonstrates impulsive behavior, get help immediately by calling a suicide hotline at 1-800-SUICIDE (1-800-784-2433) or 1-800-273-TALK (1-800-273-8255).
How can Fulshear help?
Fulshear’s mission is to help launch healthy, strong and influential women. This process begins on The Ranch where our clients separate themselves from the noise around them and focus on their own personal health and well-being. Fulshear uses individual and group therapy, family therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, and equine therapy to bring growth and change. Students and parents alike will testify to the difference that treatment made for them.
Equine-assisted psychotherapy (EAP) uses the powerful relationship between humans and horses to teach life skills. In addition to learning to care for another living thing, equine therapy helps students learn how to care for thamselves and interact with other people more effectively.
Fulshear is especially equipped to help young adult women develop coping skills to navigate complex changes in their lives, such as going off to college or dealing with the death of a loved one. We help girls focus on the psychological adjustment to the change instead of the change itself.
Where She’ll Live
When residents arrive, they live on The Ranch, 34 gorgeous acres. The peaceful environment is an ideal location for intensive healing. After building health and stability, residents move to the apartments in Stafford, Texas and live with two or three roommates but no support staff.
“Our family is forever changed from our experience at Fulshear. Our journey began on a hot, sunny day… when we dropped Jenny off at the ranch. It was one of the hardest things I have ever done; however, what I didn’t realize at the time was that it would be the best thing for Jenny and our family.”
