Bridging the gap between mental health and education.
We are here to support you and your child.
BRIDGES uses a comprehensive team approach. Each child receives services based on an individualized treatment plan developed by their therapist, parent(s)/guardian(s), school personnel, our team of treatment professionals, and the child themselves. Every treatment plan is approved by our Medical Director, who is a licensed psychiatrist.
BRIDGES offers psychotherapy services from Master’s level clinicians. Each week, every child will receive the following services: 1 hour of individual therapy, 1 hour of family therapy, and 2 hours of group therapy from a licensed therapist (clinician).
Family Therapy is designed to meet the family’s needs and are on a flexible schedule to assist families in being able to attend their sessions.
In addition to psychotherapy sessions, children also participate in a minimum of 12 hours of group rehabilitation services. These groups are facilitated by a Certified Behavioral Health Case Manager (BHCM II), requiring a minimum of a bachelor’s degree.
Rehabilitation groups utilize an evidence-based curriculum that addresses the following topics: social skills, anger management, emotional expression, communication, problem-solving, skills needed to be school-ready, and many more.
Our integrated, evidenced-based therapy treats serious emotional and/or behavioral problems in young people. Our goal is to give children and youth a safe, supportive environment to heal, move forward and transition back to their traditional school environment.
