Trilogy Celebrates the Grand Opening of Its New Program for Children and Families
The new Albany Park office will provide therapy that responds to the mental health needs of children and adolescents through work in nurturing settings using a family systems approach.
Trilogy Behavioral Healthcare has expanded its mental health services to fill a need for many children and families who find themselves on long waitlists while in search of support in their time of need. Our Impact Youth & Family Services program is a new neighbor in the Albany Park community and will offer high-quality clinical services to individuals ages 6-24, as well as their families.
Impact Youth & Family Services program, is in a newly remodeled space located 3737 W. Lawrence Ave. that includes an activity area, dry erase inspiration board, and a quiet room for meditation. The primary focus of Impact is to provide a hopeful and nurturing environment, along with comprehensive assessment and treatment, individual and group sessions, crisis services, support to families and other providers, including school-based staff.
“We look forward to serving our youth through our individualized, trauma-informed mental health services. Our hope is to support them in achieving their goals and following their dreams,” said Alison Larkin, the Project Developer for this initiative.
Trilogy understands that relationships with parents, families, and other natural supports are vital to treatment and recovery. The organization’s clinicians are trained and experienced in the treatment of addiction, trauma, and specialize in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

The Hope FIRST program offers psychiatry, individual therapy, case management, family psychoeducation and supportive employment services to individuals with an emphasis on shared decision making.
Treatment goals aim to reduce the symptoms of the psychotic illnesses, improve individual and family functioning, reduce the chance of relapse, promote recovery, improve the long-term course of the illness and decrease the overall costs of treatment.

Mental Health First Aid Training
The evidence behind Mental Health First Aid demonstrates that it makes people feel more comfortable managing a crisis situation and builds mental health literacy — helping the public identify, understand and respond to signs of mental illness. Specifically, studies found that those who trained in Mental Health First Aid have greater confidence in providing help to others, greater likelihood of advising people to seek professional help, improved concordance with health professionals about treatments, and decreased stigmatizing attitudes.
