RISE Beyond Traditional Care

Resiliency | Individuality | Skill-Building | Education

For Youth Ages 8-17

Our group-structured program is dedicated to preventing the need for higher levels of care in Kentucky's children and teens struggling with significant behavioral and emotional challenges.

Our mission is to arm each participant with mental health skills, so they're able to thrive in every facet of their lives - be it at home, school, or within the community. Through intensive skill-building, peer interactions, and a range of holistic therapeutic activities, we set the stage for bright futures and mentally strong people.

In an ever-changing world, resilience through mental health skills isn’t a luxury; it’s a necessity for our youth.

Key Program Benefits

The ultimate aim of the RISE program is to alleviate the symptoms and behaviors associated with mental health diagnoses, guiding participants toward reclaiming and enhancing their functional abilities.

  • Keeps our youth out of higher levels of care whenever possible, allowing them to maintain in their homes, schools and communities. This avoids additional trauma and attachment issues from forming.
  • Teaches kids the critical social, interpersonal, emotional, crisis, coping and daily living skills to combat their mental health diagnosis and function at their best possible level. It provides a sustainable toolkit that can carry with them through life.
  • Group setting allows for¬†necessary peer interactions where skills¬†are practiced, modeled, mentored and processed.¬†Further, it fosters a sense of belonging and recognition that they're not alone. This¬†provided connection is¬†a key component of mental well-being.
  • Individualized treatment plans, including measurable goals and a discharge and relapse prevention plan, ensures that each child‚Äôs unique needs are met and that they are safe.¬†
  • RISE fosters the learning of¬†social, interpersonal, emotional, crisis, coping and daily-living skill development to instill self-reliance. We couple this with improving Emotional Intelligence¬†skills to deepen self-awareness and empathy, both of which are crucial for managing emotions and nurturing relationships. This combination is vital; it equips participants to handle daily challenges and build resilience, laying a foundation for a well-adjusted, fulfilling future.
