Hope, Resilience, and Recovery form the heart of Thrive’s work – more now than ever before. Since the beginning of the pandemic, demand for accessible mental health services have skyrocketed.
Thrive has strived to meet this increased need by expanding both our services and our staff. By implementing teletherapy options, access to services has significantly increased leading to fewer missed appointments. Additionally, we grew our clinical team this year by eight therapists. We are particularly proud of the growth within our Youth Program. Further, we grew our internship program, welcoming 10 emerging professionals to our team. With our larger staff, we have enrolled an average of 50 new clients per month in services this year. Altogether, more clinicians are seeing more clients than ever before.
Looking to the future, we are excited to continue developing our programs to improve access to mental health services. In the coming year we are implementing three new group therapy options. Additionally, our Suicide Awareness & Prevention Program expanded to Fenwick High School this fall. Finally, we are thrilled to continue building our Crisis Program as we work to respond to all mental health crises within Oak Park and River Forest.
A client recently told us, “Thank you for all your help. Your support has helped keep me out of the hospital and has given me hope.” If you or a loved one are struggling, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here for you.
