Highland’s new Child and Adolescent Mental health Program, or C.A.M.P, will launch Monday, June 2, 2014. C.A.M.P. is a mental health day program for children and adolescents ages 12 to 17.
C.A.M.P is for young people who need intervention and treatment in a less-intensive program than that offered by inpatient hospitalization. C.A.M.P. is more intensive than a traditional outpatient therapy program.
C.A.M.P is for children who …
- Engage in self-injurious behavior
- Perform poorly in the classroom due to lack of focus or hyperactivity
- Lack coping strategies
- Struggle with problem-solving and boundaries
- Are affected by bullying.
Highland’s 10-day C.A.M.P. builds healthy habits and strategies for coping, problem-solving, communication, anger management and establishing healthy boundaries. Adolescents will learn critical life skills through experiential therapy groups including recreational, occupational and art therapy.
Assessments begin Wednesday, May 28. Assessments are free and completed 24/7. Enroll any day Monday through Friday. For more information or to schedule an assessment, please call the Highlands Intake Department at 720-348-2805.
