Outpatient Support

Outpatient Support

Children’s brain architecture is constantly developing, much like how a house is built. Just like in building a house, that process can run into difficulties along the way, perhaps from a shaky foundation or from unexpected or undue stress to the structure. So yes, children do sometimes experience psychological and behavioral health challenges, including mental illness. That’s why it is so important that we provide access to professionals who can screen and assess for signs and symptoms early on, when effective interventions are available to prevent more serious issues from developing later.

North Range therapists can help children, teens, and families strengthen the wellbeing of children and teens. We weave age-appropriate and culturally sensitive supports together that enable people to adapt well in the face of adversity. We help build skills for processing feelings and environments that promote mental health, so children, teens, and families can feel good about life.

Outpatient support occurs in an office setting and can come in the form of individual, group, family, and multi-family group therapy. We can help with:

  • Case management
  • Collaborative safety plans
  • Crisis intervention with referrals to ongoing behavioral health care
  • Development of coping skills
  • Diverting teens and young adults from inpatient stays
  • Life skills training
  • Mental health and substance use disorder treatment
  • Psychiatric services
  • Therapy

School-Based Support

School-Based Support

Children and teens have tremendous potential that we all need to foster and protect. Mentally healthy students are more likely to go to school ready to learn, develop healthy relationships, actively engage in school activities, model appropriate problem-solving behaviors, and thrive academically and personally. We know that providing access to mental health supports in school is critical to supporting mental wellness in children and youth.

Children and teens are not immune to the stresses of life. While we know that severe and persistent stress can overload our ability to manage emotions, researchers have also discovered that children can tolerate severe stress if stable, responsive adult relationships are in place to buffer the negative impact.
Our school-based support treatment services offer convenient access to effective therapy in schools throughout Weld County. North Range School-Based clinicians can help students, families, and educators work to get ahead of issues and set everyone up for success.

Support can look like:

  • Accessible treatment for depression, adolescent substance use, anger management, truancy, or anxiety
  • Building strong social skills and coping behaviors
  • Case management for students and their families
  • Coordinated treatment interventions
  • Crisis intervention
  • Family Engagement Support
  • Individual, group, and family therapy
  • Referrals to appropriate resources
  • Screenings/Assessments

We are committed to supporting schools in developing a culture where positive supports are in place to counterbalance the weight of negative experiences, and where educators are trained to recognize early signs and symptoms of mental health and substance use disorder issues with students.

Family and Community-Based Treatment

Family and Community-Based Treatment

Good mental health leads to more good days. Raising thriving, healthy children is all-important and building young brains takes work. We understand that families often experience an overload of stress that can impact the social-emotional health of children and youth and that parents need support to help children develop the skills they need. Responsive and compassionate care from trained professionals can help. We work to empower youth and the adults in their lives – parents, family members, and caregivers – to build skills that help to create the safe, stable environments that children and teens need to weather the storms and thrive.

Our team helps keep families together by:

  • Approaching family treatment with cultural sensitivity
  • Creatively engaging family members who might be resistant to therapy
  • Focusing on strengths
  • Introducing skills and strategies that build stronger bonds
  • Providing intensive in-home intervention support
  • Reducing problematic behaviors
  • Strengthening family relationships and dynamics
  • Supporting teens and young adults who may be experiencing unusual thoughts or behaviors, or who hear or see things others do not (first-episode psychosis)
