Treatment Approach — The Menninger Clinic ®

Ever since The Menninger Clinic was founded in 1925, we’ve been at the forefront of mental health treatment. With decades of experience, we know what works for people with complex, serious mental illness. We’ll help you every step of the way, too.

Inpatient Treatment

At Menninger, we believe in the biopsychosocial approach to treatment. Here, you’ll experience holistic treatment designed to uncover core issues that are having a negative effect on your mind, body, relationships and even spiritual life.
Addressing these various aspects of your life involves multi-layered treatment with an interdisciplinary clinical team. Each member of your team – psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, counselors, nurses and addictions or eating disorders professionals if needed – works together to help you based on their own unique lens of education, training and experience. You complete the team by sharing your own insights, experiences and goals.
Each team member amplifies the care that others provide, and all work to explore how their professional relationship with you can illuminate your unique issues, leading to insights that simply can’t be achieved in a week or 10 days.
One critical difference between Menninger and many psychiatric or behavioral health facilities is our commitment to longer-term care. Here, inpatients often stay upwards of 40 days – a significant investment that reaps life dividends.
Spending several weeks in treatment gives you time to develop trust in your team, and once your treatment alliance is established, breakthroughs can happen. It also gives you time to practice new skills, which builds your self-confidence that you can continue making progress once you discharge from Menninger.

During treatment, we’ll measure the results of your outcomes assessments, which reflect the progress we’re making in reducing your symptoms and enhancing your well-being.

Our treatment outcomes data is unparalleled and proves that our model of care works for most patients. With time on our side – and yours – we can do more to help you get well and stay well.


Outpatient Treatment

As part of our continuum of care, we offer a thriving outpatient service replete with outpatient therapy for adults, young adults and children and adolescents; medication management; group therapy for adults, young adults and adolescents; psychological testing, addictions treatment and more.
We also offer a comprehensive outpatient assessment for adults, young adults and children and adolescents for a definitive diagnosis as well as stepdown treatment in two community integration programs, Pathfinder and Menninger 360.
Interested in a psychosocial clubhouse environment? The Gathering Place offers a supportive community for those with chronic mental illness.
Whatever outpatient service you choose, you can count on the team to take an in-depth look into the biopsychosocial aspects of your life. Developing a full understanding of your relationships with others and yourself; your sense of self-worth; your life goals; and your pain points means we can be in a position to make a lasting difference in your life.
