All Kinds of News for April 09, 2019
Skyland Trail recently completed renovations and upgrades to the Skyland Trail South Campus, the residential facility for adults ages 25 and older enrolled in the primary psychiatric residential treatment program.
Improvements include new flooring and a new continental breakfast area in the community dining room, an updated community social room with a computer station and spaces for peer socialization and visits with family and friends, plus upgrades to private client bedrooms and private client bathrooms.
Residential clients admitting to Skyland Trail South typically stay in residential services for four to eight weeks before stepping down to the day treatment level of care. Clients may then step down to the intensive outpatient level of care as their symptoms and skills improve.
Additional renovations were completed at the Charles B. West Campus, Skyland Trail’s main campus where most therapeutic activities take place. Renovations to the gym included the installation of new recreational flooring for the full basketball court and volleyball area, fresh paint, and a reconfiguring of spaces used for personal training activities, yoga and other fitness groups.
Personal fitness and group recreation activities are included in each client’s weekly schedule, along with independent living skills groups focused on healthy eating and mindfulness meditation groups. Groups focused on physical health are an important part of Skyland Trail's commitment to an integrated health model; the holistic approach to wellness complements evidence-based psychiatric groups and one-on-one sessions focused on specific mental health diagnoses and symptoms.
