Reach teen trauma survivors on their terms.
Complement your treatment plan with a customized, web-based therapy program.
Adolescents are exposed to many traumatic stressors such as dating violence, family violence, or car accidents, but often they are afraid to speak up or don’t know how to seek help. The Teen Recovery Toolkit offers a web-based solution that reaches across barriers to support all teenagers, regardless of their situation.
Guarantee support anytime, anywhere.
Ensure all teens receive care, regardless of their geographic location or economic background.
The Teen Recovery Toolkit is an online, anonymous support system that helps teenagers cope with the psychological effects of trauma. The web-based program empowers adolescents to guide their own recovery, starting with a quiz so that teens can test how well they’re managing their situation. It then offers a personalized program of support, with feedback on their progress. The Teen Recovery Toolkit is perfect for use alongside in-person therapy and, since it’s web-based, it’s available 24/7 (1) —whenever and wherever it’s needed.
BlueSun founders are nationally renowned scholars in the field of traumatic stress. Each BlueSun program has a solid foundation in social cognitive theory and cognitive behavioral therapy. The programs employ the same techniques used by trained trauma counselors, making them great resources for use on their own or alongside in-person therapy.
All BlueSun programs are backed by rigorous clinical trials and user assessments. Early peer-reviewed research indicates improved psychological functioning after use of BlueSun programs, with a noted improvement in stress-related symptoms. Preliminary analyses suggest that BlueSun products decrease worry, stress, and depression and may increase perceptions of social support. (2)
