Charlie Health Introduces Virtual Group Therapy Program in Idaho

Charlie Health has given Montana youth unprecedented access to intensive therapy and is now collaborating with Idaho behavioral health leaders to provide Idaho youth with similar access.

Fremont, CA: Charlie Health, a virtual intensive outpatient (IOP) provider of mental health and substance use treatment for teens and young adults, has declared its expansion of services to Idaho. Charlie Health's declaration marks a new, accessible group-based treatment option for youth in Idaho.

By partnering with key community members, hospitals, schools, insurance companies, and local therapists, Charlie Health offers treatment for clients who required more than weekly individual therapy or who are transitioning back to home and school after hospital-based or residential treatment.

Charlie Health has given Montana youth unprecedented access to intensive therapy and is now collaborating with Idaho behavioral health leaders to provide Idaho youth with similar access.

"Charlie Health's mission is to provide the most innovative behavioral healthcare for young Idahoans across the state," stated Charlie Health's Director of Clinical Outreach and Admissions, Laura Sebulsky. "Our team is working quickly and carefully to change the mental health statistics plaguing teens and young adults in Idaho, by offering high quality, group-based therapy that resonates within this age group."

Suicide has been the second leading cause of death for Idahoans ages 15-34. Critically, SAMHSA survey data revealed past year major depressive episodes (MDE) among adolescents in Idaho as consistently higher than the national average and continues to increase every year. As per a survey by Youth Risk Behavioral Systems, approximately 40 percent of Idaho high school students feel sad or hopeless every day for two or more weeks, causing them to stop usual activities.

Charlie Health aims to provide quality, personalized care. Rather than group patients together depending on their physical location, Charlie Health customizes treatment plans and carefully matches patients in groups of peers with similar needs. Patients are then assigned therapists as per needs. Charlie Health uses comprehensive, evidence-based treatment programs from licensed, expert clinicians to allow healing from the comfort of clients' homes.
