It is extremely rare: for teenagers or young adults to have a stroke but it can occur. Bad headaches can be associated with a number of problems, such as migraines, sinus disease, stress, high blood pressure, and in rare cases tumors. Knowing the source of the headaches can be very helpful in determining the proper treatment. For more info on migraines see: http://understandingmigraine.blogspot.com/

Yes: In some ways. First, the parents are involved in the treatment of the teen at some level. When i work with teens i ask that the parents and the teen to respect the teen's confidentiality unless the teen is talking about doing something dangerous. In other ways, therapy is similar in helping the person grow and heal.
