If you and your treatment team decide, you will be paired with a resource therapist who will partner with you and your treatment team to identify your specific needs in creating or maintaining structure outside of Compass. Our team of dedicated resource therapists utilize motivational interviewing techniques as well as several concepts from our core evidence-based therapies to support you in making progress on your goals. Our ultimate hope is that patients who engage in this supportive, individualized service feel empowered to tackle challenges that have felt too difficult in the past and gain the executive functioning skills necessary to better manage their daily lives.
Mental health symptoms can inhibit an individual’s job readiness and executive functioning skills. When an individual has trouble with executive function skills, they may struggle with different areas of life, including school, work, and relationships. Difficulties with executive function skills can impact one’s ability to follow through with planning, prioritizing, organizing, paying attention to details, memory retention, and controlling emotional reactions.
Offered to individuals in some of the programs for Compass’s Young Adult and Adult patients Mood & Anxiety PHP/IOP programs, resource services provide multifaceted treatment for those who struggle to follow through with academic, professional, or social commitments. Resource therapists work with patients to develop an individualized resource plan. Plans could include goals related to school, work, volunteering, recreational activities, discharge planning, and more. Resource sessions help individuals identify barriers to achieving their goals and apply the skills learned in group therapy to continue moving forward.
Compass saved my life! I came into Compass with suicidal ideations and no hope. After a couple of weeks of being in the program, I did not have those thoughts anymore. Compass helped me change my mindset, from a negative pattern of thoughts to a more positive and optimistic frame of mind.Patient
My child is leaving Compass more equipped to handle her emotions, her anxiety, her depression, and the things that all trigger these. She is willing to use the skills, which is a huge change, and this is all due to how well Compass worked for her.Parent of Child Patient
I liked how in Compass, everyone was respectful of my opinions, pronouns, and preferred name. There was no judging, and you can open up to people. I also like how I can relate to other kids. I also really appreciate learning new skills.Patient
Compass is a godsend. An amazing program for children who are struggling and families who are seeking help and guidance. I could not imagine that she would be so much better in less than 2 months. I wish we could have found Compass without going to the ER. Thanks for all you do!
The evening IOP program challenged me in a supportive and respectful way to help change my way of thinking. Compass provided me with the tools to help deal with life situations in a healthy way.
