A new Teen Partial Care Program helps teens find balance through care and empowerment.
September brought in a new school year filled with uncertainty. Few schools in NJ are fully open, many are a hybrid of in-person & virtual learning, while others have fully virtual learning plans in place. While no one can answer the question of when it will all go back to normal, it was important for our team to meet the needs of this unique moment in time for teens and families requiring mental health treatment.
The need for mental health services has increased through the pandemic & Innerspace Counseling has continued to be there by pioneering safe, effective treatment for higher levels of mental healthcare through telehealth. We have gone a step further with our Teen Partial Care Program by incorporating free daily tutoring services.
The Teen Partial Care Program is for teens ages 12 & up dealing with anxiety, depression, school refusal, mood disturbances, self-harm behaviors, & more. Since we exclusively provide primary mental health treatment, programs are made up of teens dealing with similar issues.
The program is run virtually each day from 8 AM to 3 PM through easy access links to a HIPPA compliant platform. There, teens participate in group therapy, individual counseling, family sessions, medication management with a board-certified psychiatrist, & daily tutoring with a teacher. The tutoring will aid in their remote learning plans & keep them on track academically.
