Mental Health Outpatient Treatment

Clear’s Mental Health Outpatient Program specializes in assessing and treating mental health conditions as well as grief, loneliness and burnout through a trauma-informed, self-empowering lens. Our expert therapeutic and clinical team takes a comprehensive and individualized approach to helping you heal holistically, by integrating mental health education, evidence-based individual and group therapy, and experiential wellness groups.

Clear’s Mental Health Programs, Available Online & In-Person

We know each client is unique, and it’s essential that they receive the level of care that’s best for them. That’s why Clear’s Mental Health Outpatient Program offers five options:

  • Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
  • Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
  • Virtual IOP
  • Outpatient Services
  • Alumni Program

Our mental health outpatient programs might be your next step if you need more than an hour of individual therapy a week, but do not quite qualify for a residential level of care—or, if you’ve who have recently completed a higher level of care, such as inpatient or residential treatment, and are looking to transition back into your daily life while still receiving support and guidance. We also offer age-specific, mental health treatment for teens— Learn More.

    Convenient, Comprehensive Mental Health Outpatient Programming

    Our robust clinical model offers meaningful programming for sustained mental wellbeing with daytime, evening and virtual care options, so you can conveniently fit treatment into your day to day life. Most of our in-person clients start at the PHP level of care and participate in therapeutic programming 5 days a week for 6 hours a day. After PHP, clients step down into IOP or virtual IOP and participate 3 to 5 days a week for 3 hours a day before transitioning back into an independent lifestyle. All levels of care provide:

    • A supportive and caring community of mentors and others on the healing journey
    • Personalized care based on an in-depth assessment to meet your unique needs and goals

    Signs that You or a Loved One May Benefit from Mental Health Outpatient Treatment

    Clear’s mental health outpatient programs are best for those who need more support than weekly therapy in order to fully address their mental health and thrive. Outpatient treatment may be the best fit for you or a loved one, if experiencing:

    • Thoughts, emotions or behaviors that are affecting your relationships, your work or your sense of well-being
    • Prolonged feelings of sadness or chronic stress
    • Difficulty coping with major life transitions 
    • Codependency or other challenges in interpersonal relationships
    • Grief, bereavement or loss
    • Anxiety related to work, occupational burnout or difficulty sustaining work-life balance
    • Prolonged academic or professional difficulty
    • Declining motivation or difficulty concentrating and making decisions
    • Isolation or withdrawal from friends or activities once enjoyed
    • Feelings of apathy, hopelessness, helplessness or depression
    • Hallucinations or delusions
    • Disordered eating or thoughts of hurting yourself or others
    • Compassion fatigue, caregiver or parental burnout
    • Insufficient improvement with weekly therapy

    Mental health outpatient treatment can address the root causes of these issues before any emotional, physical, professional, or financial repercussions worsen. Although mental health conditions are highly treatable, many go a long time between noticing symptoms and receiving adequate support. Timely help can make a big difference.
