Skyland Trail recently began construction on a new campus for adolescents ages 14 to 17 with mood and anxiety disorders. The campus is scheduled to open in 2019 and offer a continuum of care for adolescents beginning with residential treatment.
A 26-bed residential facility will include private rooms for adolescent clients as well as common areas for socialization, family engagement, and dining. An adjacent 30,000 sq. ft. building will offer therapeutic spaces for group and individual sessions as well as expressive activities like art and music therapy. A media center will include dedicated workstations for clients to complete their school work supported by an education coordinator who will act as a liaison with clients' schools.
The adolescent campus is made possible by generous philanthropic support provided through the Building Resilience, Changing Lives capital campaign. Foundations and individuals contributed more than $20 million to develop this adolescent program to meet the needs of families in Georgia and beyond.
