Chicagoland Mental Health Clinic For Teens and Young Adults

As an adolescent or young adult, life can be overwhelming, leaving you with crucial decisions and emotions that may make you feel anxious and isolated. If you’re struggling with mental health issues like depression, trauma, or anxiety, these challenges can intensify, making you feel stuck and unable to move forward.

Our focus is on your goals, not just your symptoms. We maintain a low client-to-staff ratio, so you’ll have dedicated attention and personalized treatment plans, not one-size-fits-all lectures.

Through our in-person Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), we offer comprehensive mental health care that will teach you coping skills you can put into practice right away. With Sandstone Care, you can finally focus on the goals that matter most to you.

An Outpatient Center With Heart

“Sometimes navigating the mental health world can be a nightmare, [but Sandstone] is a very welcoming and easy environment.” – Nick

When Nick and his partner Alex arrived at Sandstone, they knew this was going to be different than any treatment they’d experienced before. During their time with us, they learned how to navigate Nick’s diagnosis, advocate for his mental health, and strengthen their relationship through family therapy.

But don’t take our word for it: Listen to Nick and Alex’s shared experience of Sandstone’s outpatient center.

Not only was the group supportive, but the support from the staff was amazing.

I initially came to Sandstone for IOP and it helped me get through a really though time in my life. I ended up staying through OP and I would recommend it to anyone that needs support with their mental health.

Our Program Options

Our Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) offer structured care for teens and young adults struggling with various mental health challenges.

Our PHP involves visiting the center 3-4 days each week for several hours each day. This level of care is suitable for you if you require more immediate intervention for things like severe depression, anxiety, or acute psychiatric symptoms.

When enrolled in our IOP, you will attend treatment 1-2 times each week for a few hours at a time. This program provides ongoing therapy and support while allowing you to maintain their daily routines and responsibilities. It is right for you if you need ongoing support with a lower level of supervision.

When to Seek Help

Determining whether you or your child could benefit from professional mental health treatment can be overwhelming. Mental health struggles in teens and young adults can show themselves in unexpected ways, but catching those signs early can help prevent these struggles from developing into more severe conditions.

Some common signs that it may be time to get help include:

  • Frequent anxiety or panic attacks
  • Prolonged changes in mood or intense mood swings
  • Insomnia and fatigue
  • Appetite changes
  • Irritability
  • Flashbacks to a traumatic experience
  • Lack of interest in social life and hobbies
  • Risky or impulsive behavior, such as substance use
  • Self-harm or suicidal thoughts
