Virginia Mental Health Statistics

Like their peers around the country, adolescents in Virginia are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, and other mental health conditions. More than 15 percent of Virginia teens suffer from major depression, yet less than half of them receive any mental health services at all.

Our model of care incorporates teenage counseling services, including teen depression therapy, with local parent support groups and family therapy in our Fairfax mental health center. Both young people and parents gain tools for better communication and enhanced family harmony.

Newport Academy Virginia Outpatient FAQs

What is the difference between teen inpatient and teen outpatient treatment?

While attending a teen outpatient program, your child is in programming during the day or afternoon, and is at home overnight and on weekends. In inpatient treatment, teens live on-site at a residential location while receiving treatment. Both residential treatment and the highest level of outpatient care (a Partial Hospitalization Program, or PHP) typically include an academic component. If your teen needs more than teenage therapy services or outpatient programming, we encourage you to learn more about our residential treatment and contact us to determine the best fit for your child.

What’s the difference between a PHP, an IOP, and outpatient services?

The main difference between Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and outpatient services is the amount of time your child spends in treatment. At the PHP day program level, adolescents attend all-day programming, five days a week. The IOP level is usually five afternoons a week, following the client’s attendance at their home school. Outpatient services refer to the lowest level of teen outpatient treatment, with programming provided fewer than five afternoons a week, depending on the client’s and family’s needs and goals.

What happens in outpatient therapy at Newport Academy Virginia?

In a teen outpatient program, clients typically have a structured daily schedule that includes individual and group therapy sessions, experiential modalities, and time in the classroom focusing on academics and life skills. Depending on the day and the outpatient program location, teens may be doing yoga or a ropes course, making art or music, doing community service with their peers, or participating in family programs that involve parents and siblings in the healing process.

Are teenage counseling and outpatient adolescent mental health the same?

Teen outpatient treatment encompasses teen therapy and much more. A PHP, IOP, or outpatient services for your child will provide a wide range of therapeutic and academic experiences, while offering a stable and supportive community and addressing the entire family’s needs.
