The Institute of Living at Hartford Hospital offers a Young Adult Intensive Outpatient Program specifically for incoming or returning college students struggling with anxiety or depression.

The goal of the program is to give students the tools they need to manage the college experience and increase their opportunities for success.

The program, which runs for 4-5 weeks, includes three days in the Young Adult Services Intensive Outpatient Program (hyperlink), with a fourth day focused on college-specific issues, including:
  • Planning and organization skills
  • Daily living – diet, sleep, exercise, relaxation, etc.
  • Socialization
  • Drug use
  • Stress management
