Mission: Menninger is a world leader in psychiatric treatment, research and education.

Programs: The menninger clinic's compass program for young adults serves young adults, ages 18 to 30, who are having problems managing the transition from adolescence to adulthood. This inpatient treatment program lasts six to eight weeks. The houston-based program is designed for young adults who struggle with one or more mental health issues, especially those co-occurring with addiction or substance abuse, including: mood disorders such as depression or bipolar disorder, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (ptsd), gender identity and sexual issues, emerging personality disorders such as borderline and narcissistic, attention-deficit disorder (add), dysfunctional reactions to developmental and life problems, self-harm behavior such as cutting, past suicide attempts or ideation, and self-esteem issues.

the comprehensive psychiatric assessment service program (cpas)at the menninger clinic works closely with adults and their families who are dealing with challenging psychiatric issues or crisis, particularly patients who have not responded to previous attempts at treatment and medication. The cpas also works with patients who require a comprehensive assessment or second opinion. Our patients in the program for stabilization struggle with a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, mania and cognitive issues. The program offers two distinct services: stabilization for acute symptoms and discharge planning and comprehensive assessment, diagnosis and recommendations for next steps.

the hope program for adults at the menninger clinic helps adults with complex psychiatric issues that have hindered their capacity to meet important vocational, personal and interpersonal goals. The intensive hospital-based program offers a comprehensive approach to treat men and women with: mood disorders, including major depressive and bipolar disorders,anxiety disorders such as generalized and social anxiety disorders, substance abuse or other addiction disorders, personality disorders, such as borderline, narcissistic or dependent, psychotic disorders beyond the acute phase of stabilization, and trauma-related disorders.
