MHA's Featured Group Practice is HopeWay
HopeWay is a premier accredited non-profit mental health treatment facility for adults with both residential and day treatment programs. In addition to 36 private bedrooms and baths in the residential unit, HopeWay offers two day treatment programs – Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient – which can serve at least 50 additional people. HopeWay’s holistic, integrated treatment model focuses on complete psychiatric and medical wellness with access to full psychiatric diagnostic and assessment services and psychological testing, when needed. Because of the importance of maintaining mental and physical health, HopeWay has achieved the recognition of a Behavioral Health Home, with their on-site wellness clinic to address the physical needs of their clients.
Their experienced team of psychiatrists and therapists work together to create individualized treatment plans for each client based on the results of their assessments and their personal goals. In addition to individual therapy sessions, clients participate in group and integrative therapies, such as art, music, recreation, horticulture, health & wellness, yoga and mindfulness and meditation. HopeWay even has a therapy dog, named Theo!
Part of HopeWay’s mission is to provide educational opportunities to the greater Charlotte community about the realities and stigmas associated with mental illness. This includes an annual educational event open to the public, continuing education opportunities for service providers and behavioral health professionals, and speaking engagements throughout the region, including in faith communities, civic organizations and schools.
