The Mental Health Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a group-based therapy located at UM Shore Regional Health at Cambridge. The IOP meets Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Initial intake appointments, treatment planning, and additional individual or family sessions occur on Wednesdays and Fridays.

The program is structured to provide a multi-disciplinary approach to mental health disorders for those who require a higher level of care than typical outpatient therapy offers.

Participants in the IOP receive therapy and education on a variety of topics, including: 

  • Mental illness and healthy coping mechanisms
  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Grief and loss
  • Boundary setting and self-esteem
  • Mind/body connection
  • Healthier lifestyles
  • Anger management
  • Medication education
