Eva Carlston Academy is a residential treatment center for teenage girls struggling with difficulties associated with depression, trauma, and anxiety. Our program hires highly accomplished therapists and teachers who have proven themselves in their respective fields and share a deep passion for mentoring others.

Eva Carlston complements intensive, sophisticated psychotherapy with a robust program of art therapy, accredited academics, life-skills instruction, and therapeutic recreation. Our program takes place in three elegantly appointed houses in urban Salt Lake City, giving girls an intimate sense of home as well as access to the cultural resources and opportunities of a large city.

All elements of our program are oriented toward helping girls discover and develop a passion—one that will energize, guide, and motivate them for years to come.
