Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (MHIOP)
Are your emotions controlling you? Are you often overwhelmed by feelings of anger or sadness, or feelings of being out of control or anxious?
Healthy Futures’ Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program is designed to help you regain a sense of peace and contentment with life through the proven methods found in Dialectical Behavior Therapy.
Our Mental Health IOP, also known as “Skills for Life” class, is based on DBT Skills Training. DBT is a highly effective treatment designed to help individuals develop skills to cope with life’s stresses.
The program is for adults of all genders, 18 and older.
Members of our DBT group come from a variety of backgrounds and struggle with different kinds of problems, including physical illnesses, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, obsessional thinking, relationship difficulties, self-harm and anger management challenges.
MHIOP group members must also be in individual therapy on a regular basis, with a Healthy Futures provider or elsewhere, to be considered a candidate for this group. This is a high functioning group.
