Menninger is proud to announce the launch of Menninger 360 for Adolescents, a home-based community integration program for children ages 12 and older with chronic mental illness.
It is the first program for assertive community treatment (PACT) in the country for this age group. The program treats adolescents who struggle with managing their emotions. This includes clients with diagnoses of borderline personality disorder, major depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, excessive gaming, substance use and anxiety disorders.
Serving families in Houston, it offers personalized treatment and support from an interdisciplinary team of mental health clinicians, including a full-time psychiatrist, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors and academic support professionals. Team members have special expertise in treating trauma, mood regulation, self-harm and phase-of-life challenges.
Treatment and support takes place in the comfort and convenience of the child's home or community-based activity. It includes individual therapy, family therapy, parent coaching, experiential therapies, academic support, social skills development and more.
"Parents engaging with their children in a familiar setting can create a healthier environment for the adolescent to thrive. That's exactly what this program is designed to do," said Matthew Estey, LCSW, director of Menninger 360 for Adolescents. "Our mobile team can offer treatment to busy families that might not have the time to commit otherwise. We want families to have a better treatment alternative than sending their children away for an extended period of time."
