Denver Springs, a provider of behavioral health services in the Denver area, will open its newest outpatient center to provide mental health services to the community.
Changes, the new facility at 16830 Northgate Drive in Parker, will provide partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs for ages 12-17. The new center will open Sept. 9.
“According to the CDC, Colorado's teenage suicide rate is nearly twice the national average,” Denver Springs Chief Executive Officer Bill Snyder said in a news release. “We knew that we could do more to help prevent this epidemic from needlessly taking so many of our children's lives. Our compassionate team at Changes will provide intensive therapy for kids that are most at risk.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly nine out of every 100,000 teenagers in the United States will die by suicide, the release said. The same data show that the rate in Colorado is almost twice that number, nearly 17.6 teens per 100,000, the release said.
To help address this crisis, the model of care at Changes, Denver Springs focuses on:
* Partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment programs
* Individualized treatment and aftercare plans
* Comprehensive psychiatric evaluations
* Medication management and monitoring
* Group therapy and education
* Family support and education
* Integration of academics in daytime programming
* Collaboration and discharge planning with area schools and providers
The new center will treat adolescents with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and other common mental health conditions. Services include psychiatric evaluations, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient programs and medication management. Confidential patient assessments are available 24/7. Most insurances are accepted. For more information, visit DenverSprings.com.
The newly constructed facility features therapy rooms, interior spaces, an outdoor recreation area, a lunchroom, classrooms and meeting spaces. The space is designed to promote safety and healing for patients and their families.
