Mental Health Outpatient Program

Feeling down or stressed out can be overwhelming. Getting help from a professional is a great first step to feeling better. Outpatient programs offer a flexible way to get the support you need while still going to school or work. 

These programs can help with many problems, and they teach skills to manage symptoms, cope with stress, and get back on track. Whether you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, past trauma, or something else, outpatient programs can help you take charge of your mental health.


Features of Our Outpatient Program for Mental Health

Anyone could experience depression. This mental health condition can materialize differently for each person. Some may have persistent sadness and feelings of hopelessness. Others could experience changes in sleep and appetite.

Don’t let these symptoms be a cause for despair. Depression is thankfully treatable. What treatment works best for you will depend on how bad your symptoms are and what you’re most comfortable with. A mental health professional can guide you through it, every step.

A big benefit of our program is how flexible it is. We offer appointments in the evenings and on weekends, so you don’t have to miss work or school. Plus, you get to stay in your home environment while receiving our support.

Currently, we’re developing a system to measure progress in our programs formally. In the meantime, therapists use various assessment tools to track clients’ progress toward their goals.

Comprehensive Outpatient Programs in Massachusetts

Our registered Massachusetts outpatient program provides therapy services tailored to your specific concerns. Treatment isn’t only about how you’re feeling right now, but also what might be causing these feelings. Tools to help you heal in the long run include therapy sessions, medication management (if needed), and relaxation exercises. 

Using proven approaches, we can help you develop coping skills, manage symptoms, and feel better overall. Plus, strong relationships with our clients are integral to creating a safe space for healing.

What Does the Outpatient Program Treat?

We help with various mental health conditions and co-occurring disorders, such as schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorders. Some areas we treat include:

Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness and a loss of interest in activities you once enjoyed. Our outpatient program offers specialized treatment for depression, including major depressive disorder (MDD).

Proven therapies like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) are a primary part of care for depression. These treatments aim to help you understand your thoughts and feelings. Medication might also be an option to improve your mood. As a whole, our goal is to help you feel better overall.

Traumatic events can have a rippling effect on mental health. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can include intense flashbacks, nightmares, and avoiding trauma reminders. Our trauma-informed outpatient program supports individuals with PTSD and other trauma-related problems. We work to help you process your trauma and develop coping mechanisms to manage difficult emotions.

Anxiety disorders often include generalized anxiety, panic attacks, social anxiety, and phobias. While it’s normal to feel worried or nervous sometimes, intervention may be beneficial if it becomes chronic. 

To help you manage your anxiety and feel more in control, we prioritize a combination of techniques. This includes CBT, mindfulness exercises (focusing on the present moment), and learning healthy coping skills.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) involves intense mood swings and difficulty regulating emotions. BPD can also cause unstable relationships, a strong fear of abandonment, and impulsive behaviors. We use therapies like DBT (dialectical behavior therapy) to teach you how to regulate your emotions and improve your relationships.

Having constant unwanted thoughts or repetitive behaviors can be challenging. We work with you to understand your obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) patterns and develop a tailored plan to manage them. This might involve exposure therapy, where you gradually face your fears in a safe, encouraging setting.

Attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affect attention, focus, and impulse control. Our program provides options like CBT to help you manage symptoms and improve focus. While medication may be an option, we also teach you skills to be more productive in daily life.

Outpatient Therapy for Mental Health and Long-term Recovery

Mental health wellness can feel lonely or confusing. A therapist or doctor can help you understand what’s going on and get you back on track to feeling better. With this understanding, you can develop strategies to confidently navigate everyday life. With outpatient programs, you can get the care you need in a convenient and comfortable setup.

At Aftermath Behavioral Health, we know that getting better from mental health challenges takes time. Our program focuses not only on feeling better now but also on building resilience and coping skills for long-term success. Through individual therapy, group sessions, and workshops, we foster a supportive community. This allows you to connect with others facing similar challenges.

When experiencing poor mental health, it’s better not to wait to get help. Many resources are available for mental health support. Therapists, mental health clinics, and primary care doctors can connect you with the right services, like outpatient programs or support groups.

Outpatient therapy helps people with mental health concerns without needing a hospital stay. It offers one-on-one therapy sessions, group sessions with others facing similar challenges, and medication if needed.

The terms “mental disorder” and “mental illness” get thrown around a lot, but they’re not the same. A mental disorder is like a diagnosed condition that affects your thoughts, feelings, or actions in a way that makes daily life tough. Mental illness is a broader term that covers many different mental health problems.

Feeling down, stressed out, or grumpy for long periods could be warning signs of a mental health issue. Other signs include sleeping too much or not enough, not feeling hungry, lack of focus, disinterest in socializing, or losing interest in hobbies. Even physical aches and pains that won’t go away could be a sign.
