Adolescents struggling with mental health issues can spend their summer at CAMP.

The Child/Adolescent Mental Health Program is offered Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., at Highlands Behavioral Health System, 8565 S. Poplar Way, just south of C-470.

The program lasts from two to four weeks, and teens can start at any time during the summer, from May until August. CAMP is open to ages 11-18.

Topics include feelings identification, mindfulness, learning and practicing coping skills, healthy relationship characteristics, boundaries, coping with bullying, social media, gossip and rumors, anxiety and depression.

An open house to meet the staff, see the outpatient area, ask questions and learn more is May 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be provided so registration is required.
