Embrace Growth and Freedom with the Imagine Summer Program

imagine summer program

With its opportunities for freedom, self-discovery, and the creation of cherished memories, summer holds a special meaning for many teens. However, for some adolescents who grapple with mental health issues such as anxiety and depression, the lack of structure during these months can be daunting. Understanding this challenge, Imagine by Northpoint has crafted the Imagine Summer Program, a transformative initiative aimed at empowering teens to manage life’s challenges while fostering growth and camaraderie.

A Holistic Approach

Tailored for those aged 12 through 17 (though in some cases we accept 11-year-olds), the Imagine Summer Program takes a holistic approach to mental health treatment by integrating traditional clinical methodologies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) with experiential learning activities.  In this way, teens not only develop essential coping skills but also form meaningful connections with their peers.

“Many adolescents who struggle with their mental health tend to regress over the summer, which can make the transition to school in the fall very difficult,” said Dr. Trevor Bixler, Vice President, Clinical Services at Northpoint Recovery and Imagine by Northpoint. “The summer program we’ve constructed is aimed at helping adolescents have a fun and safe summer experience while still keeping up on their skills to manage difficult emotions.”

The Imagine Summer Program is for all teens, including teens who have been through our program before and those who would be coming as in first-time clients. By addressing the unique needs of each participant, our team of professionals ensures every teen receives individualized support throughout their journey.

A Supportive Environment

At the heart of the program lies our commitment to creating a supportive environment where teens can learn, thrive, and have fun. A diverse range of activities awaits participants across all Imagine by Northpoint facilities. From hiking in scenic landscapes to engaging in animal-assisted therapy, each experience is carefully curated to promote self-discovery and growth.

Also, the Imagine Summer Program emphasizes the cultivation of social skills and resilience. Through team-building exercises, group discussions, and interactive workshops, teens learn to navigate interpersonal relationships and develop healthy coping mechanisms for whatever life throws at them. This emphasis on social interaction fosters a sense of belonging and mutual support, enhancing overall well-being.

Make it the Best Summer Ever with the Imagine Summer Program

As summer approaches, now is the perfect time for teens and their families to explore the possibilities available to them. In conclusion, by investing in their mental health and well-being, teens lay the foundation for a brighter future filled with resilience, growth, wellness, and endless possibility.
