The Imagine facility is designed to fill a gap in mental health services in Omaha.

OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — The new space was created to give older children a fresh start.

It’s called “Imagine” and is the first space of its kind for Omaha, offering a new option for kids with mental health issues ages 12-17.

The space fills the gap between inpatient care and more typical therapeutic services focused on children’s mental health.

It is operated by Northpoint, which runs inpatient programs throughout the country. They have had success elsewhere comparable to Omaha and want to see the same here.

The facility will provide different types of spaces designed to meet the needs of children.

Young people will participate in the program six hours a day, five days a week.

“It’s really kind of fulfilling their intense emotional and behavioral needs,” said Mark Jones, vice president of Northpoint.

The tool will also eliminate potential learning pitfalls and offer resources for middle and high school students.

“If we need to work on credit rebuilding, GED preparation, we can meet with them wherever they are,” said Roycelyn Morse, director of communications at Northpoint.

Staff anticipate their own learning curve by observing how the needs of children change after graduation.

“We’re also curious to see what happens during the summer months when regular schools don’t have classes,” Morse said. “Will we have a higher response?

Navigating these potential issues and expanding this service will be how they plan to better meet the needs of children.

“Our goal is to equip them with the skills to deal with stress, emotional responses, and build healthy relationships with others,” Jones said.

The Imagine facility is located at 8710 Frederick St. and will begin accepting patients on March 6th.
