Taylorview Junior High, 350 Castlerock Lane, Idaho Falls
Raising teens can be challenging. Dr. Matthew Larsen will help you distinguish between normal teen rebellion, danger signs that might require professional help, and warning signs of major mental health issues.
Dr. Larsen is a child and adolescent psychiatrist practicing at the Behavioral Health Center at EIRMC. He is an Idaho Falls native, having graduated from Skyline High School in 2000. Dr. Larsen earned his fellowship and residency from the University of Nevada, and attended medical school at the Des Moines University.
Dr. Larsen has a strong interest in suicide prevention, and in two types of therapy: ACT and DBT. He finds these most useful in helping teens who are chronically suicidal or self-harming. Since moving to Idaho Falls, he was elected the Chairman of the local chapter of the Suicide Prevention Action Network.
