Teen mental health services in Kansas City

When a teen is in distress and having emotional problems, their needs are much different from those of adults. Working with teens during difficult times requires specialized training and experience.

We offer inpatient and outpatient services for teens between 12 and 18 years old. Our team of clinicians provides the care and support teens and their families need to overcome their struggle, provide hope and aid in recovery.

We provide comprehensive treatment for a variety of issues, including:

  • Acute psychosis
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Emotional distress
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Suicidal/homicidal thoughts

Our acute-care center provides short-term crisis stabilization for teens who need immediate care. Through an intensive therapeutic environment, we help teens return to their homes, communities and schools as soon as possible.

Inpatient services include:

  • 24/7 monitoring
  • Individualized, physician-directed treatment plans
  • Daily visits from a psychiatrist
  • A safe, secure and structured environment
  • Discharge planner for a continuum of care
  • Diagnostic evaluations
  • Medication evaluation and management

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Pharmacy counseling
  • Family therapy
  • Psycho-educational groups
  • Art and recreational therapy

Hospital-based treatment options

Hospital-based services include short-term, acute care inpatient hospitalization as well as day treatment programs. Staying in the hospital can be a daunting experience for a teenager. That’s why we make every effort to provide a structured, therapeutic, and safe environment in a caring atmosphere.

These programs provide effective options for the patient who urgently needs daily treatment without 24-hour care. Also, the day programs can ease the transition from acute inpatient care to home or family.

Outpatient services

The Partial Hospitalization Program helps teens whose emotional or behavioral problems affect their ability to function at home and at school. This program offers them the intensive treatment available as an inpatient, but they can go home every afternoon.

Adolescent intensive outpatient program

This program provides an intermediate level of care for teens between 12 and 18 years old with needs too complex for individual therapy alone but who don’t need inpatient care.

The program is led by an experienced team that integrates evidence-based clinical programming to provide teens with new tools to master everyday life's practical challenges.

Services include:

  • Psychiatrist evaluation
  • Medication management when needed
  • Structured group therapy with a licensed clinician 3 evenings weekly
  • Family-centered participation one evening weekly
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy
  • Interpersonal effectiveness skills building
  • Behavioral life skills training

Sessions are held every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30pm to 8:00pm at Research Medical Center Brookside Campus. When you arrive, park in Lot C.
