The Rollins Campus for young adults is a normalizing environment that feels very much like a college campus ... not a hospital. While there are rules and expectations, clients are part of a welcoming community of peers and expert clinicians. This community helps young adults who are struggling with a mental illness realize that they are not alone.
They meet other individuals their age who have similar experiences and who are working through similar questions: What does this diagnosis mean for my future? How do I relate to my friends and family? How do I ask for help when I need it? How do I make healthy choices so that I can be independent and live the life I want?
Structured, evidence-based therapeutic activities throughout the day help clients develop the skills they need to answer these questions. The relationships that clients develop with their peers and counselors help provide the inspiration and motivation to fully participate in treatment and start to use the skills to make progress toward recovery.
