Intensive Outpatient Program

CAPS is partnering with Charlie Health to keep students in school while they receive mental health support and treatment.

Therapy once or twice a week isn’t always enough. Charlie Health’s Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) combines supported groups, family therapy, and individual therapy into a series of personalized sessions multiple times per week. Our experts use research to address mental health struggles at their roots. Think this could be the right therapy for you?
