IPT helps individuals identify their symptoms, understand how their relationships affect their depression, and how depression impacts their functioning. Therapists providing Interpersonal Psychotherapy for Depression work with adults (IPT) and adolescents (IPT-A) ages 12-17 for a duration of 14-16 weeks. By learning to cope with personal struggles and understanding their connection to depression, clients develop better relationship skills and parenting skills, and ways to manage depressive episodes in the future.
Individuals can reach out directly to MHFC to inquire about services. We also accept referrals through community partners.
Who is eligible: ages 12-17; parents/caregivers
