Presence Saint Joseph Hospital offers many levels of care for depression, anxiety and related issues for patients aged 12-17.
Adolescents can be treated in an inpatient setting, a partial or intensive outpatient program or in an outpatient setting. Patients and their families are encouraged to take an active role in their treatment.
Adolescents may need the safety and structure of 24-hour care, including diagnosis, crisis stabilization, medication and management, individual staffing, case management and discharge planning.
While in the hospital, patients receive individual, group and intensive family therapy. They learn communication skills, social skills and coping skills. Recreational and leisure oriented therapies also are a part of the program.
Schoolwork for inpatients
A certified teacher from our tutorial school will help patients with assigned schoolwork and act as a liaison between the children and their schools.
Partial hospital and intensive outpatient programs
For times when 24-hour care is not necessary, or when a step-down level of care is helpful after hospitalization, we offer services that help with evaluation and stabilization.
Services include crisis stabilization, schooling, medication education and management plus weekend and discharge planning. Patients learn anger management, stress management, coping skills, communication and social skills.
Therapies include individual, family, group, recreational and leisure.
All treatment plans are guided by a psychiatrist. Additionally, inpatients are followed by a primary care physician.
Outpatient services are provided that include therapy, family therapy and case management services to help patients understand and cope with their mental illness.
