“I have been living with mental illnesses since I was 13... hospitalized more than 10 times since I was 19. After being in therapy for the last six months, I feel more stable than I have in my whole life... I love what they have done for me.”

Day Treatment

Who: Headway’s Day Treatment Program, known for its excellence, is designed for adolescents in 7th through 12th grades who have emotional and behavioral challenges that make it difficult for them to succeed in their mainstream academic settings. Teens who live in the counties in and around the Twin Cities can be considered for participation.

Day Treatment is a 6-12-month, full-day, Monday through Friday program consistent with school holidays. Part of each day is devoted to an academic curriculum coordinated through Intermediate District 287 (Headway Academy); and part to emotional health, via a path-based curriculum geared to enhance self-esteem and build social and coping skills, which includes process-oriented groups. In addition to groups Headway Day Treatment offers weekly individual therapy, family therapy at least every other week, diagnostic assessments, goal setting and treatment planning, and psychological testing.

Parents, teachers, school counselors or therapists, social service agencies, or hospitals may make referrals to our program. We will request certain information from parents and mental health providers to determine eligibility, a process that may take up to two weeks.
