The Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program and Partial Hospitalization Program (IOP, PHP) consists of specialized group therapy sessions led by clinical therapists. Our goal is to improve participant’s well-being by assisting in building healthy relationships, satisfying daily activity, and improved ability to positively manage their emotional state.
The IOP and PHP programs primarily serve people with mood and anxiety disorders such as major depression, bipolar disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. The program also accepts participants with other disorders such as schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder who are already stabilized on medication.
Programs for Teens and Adults. Accepts Medi-Cal and most insurances.
ASPIRE (for teens and young adults)
The eight-week Transitional Age Youth (TAY) Program is designed for young adults between 18 and 25 years old. The program meets four days a week and offers intensive outpatient care. Participants learn healthy living strategies and develop academic and career skills, as well as academic skills. The comprehensive treatment team includes a psychiatrist, clinical psychologist and/or marriage and family therapist, registered nurse, and an occupational therapist. The program is available at the Los Gatos campus.
2nd Story (must be a County Client)
2nd Story is a six-bed house which serves as a respite and a voluntary opportunity for individuals to learn to use relationships to move out of old roles and patterns. They offer a maximum stay of 6 days in a home environment, and provides guests with opportunities to identify and plan for changes they feel will benefit them once they have returned home. All former guests are offered ongoing telephone support, and are welcome to visit when they need encouragement from their peers and Second Story staff.
Program participants also have opportunities to enroll in Intentional Peer Support training and learn to be of assistance to others.Staffed by “peers,” (people with lived experience of mood swings, consuming fears, voices, visions), the household provides an opportunity to experience what change feels like, and to learn new responses through relationships with each other.
Second Story is not a substitute for psychiatric hospitalization. Those who are drawn to the program develop, with staff, ahead of time, a plan for dealing with feelings and behaviors that in the past have led to inpatient stays.
