Mental Health Center of Denver for Teens & Young Adults

Navigating life as a teen or young adult is filled with challenges. Our mental health treatment programs consider all aspects of this stage of life, so you can experience treatment that’s actually relevant to your life.

At our mental health facilities in Denver, you’ll work with peers who understand what you’re going through in our age-specific Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP).

Whether you’re managing the stress of high school or leaving home for the first time, our expert staff will teach you scientifically-proven skills that you can use to handle these challenges in a healthy way. This time in your life isn’t just about surviving – with the right support, you can thrive.

From Chaos To Community

“As someone who has spent all of my life – up until the complete breakdown – ignoring my mental health, there’s no time like the present to start working on yourself.”

When Nick came to Sandstone, he’d been in and out of IOP and PHP treatment programs in another state. Coming to Sandstone Care’s mental health facility was his final “Hail Mary” pass, and he hoped it would help him finally understand how to navigate his condition.

What he got was just that, and so much more. Listen to Nick’s inspiring story of how the program helped him understand his diagnosis, develop compassion for himself, and build a community of friends and mentors who genuinely cared.

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.
