Suicide is the second-leading cause of death among people age 15 to 24 in the U.S. Nearly 20% of high school students report serious thoughts of suicide.
Our adolescent IOP program allows your teen to attend school every day and gives parents the comfort of knowing their mental health is being cared for as well. That’s why the interactive group therapy sessions in our teen IOP take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Your loved one can participate in the IOP for teens without sacrificing their education, making our after school IOP the perfect choice for adolescents to take positive steps forward with their mental health without putting them behind their peers academically.
In our IOP for adolescents, our goal is to make sure we are offering therapy and treatment so that every teen is cared for in a holistic way. Your teen will learn coping skills, emotional regulation, empathy, self-awareness and how to build friendships and healthy support systems in a structured, engaging environment.
Some of the ways we help your teen include:
All of these skills work towards the overall goal of better mental health, and our adolescent therapists are more than ready to provide your teen with the tools for positive outcomes.
Your loved one will be in good hands at Glen Oaks.
Your teen’s mental health matters — and studies show that getting help now can be the key to a happier, healthier life. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), nearly 50 percent of people who experience a mental health issue in their lifetime first started showing symptoms in childhood and adolescents.
Mental health issues don’t just go away on their own — we’re here to help. Addressing warning signs now may lead to fewer mental health issues in the future for your loved one.
