Our Approach

NextGen uses the Integrative Therapy Approach 

Mental health and mental illness (disorder) are increasingly being used as if they mean the same thing, but they do not. Everyone has mental health, just like everyone has health. As the World Health Organization famously says, “There is no health without mental health.” In the course of a lifetime, not all people will experience a mental illness, but everyone will struggle or have a challenge with their mental well-being (i.e., their mental health) just like we all have challenges with our physical well-being from time to time.

When we talk about mental health, we are talking about our mental well-being: Our emotions; our thoughts; and feelings; our ability to solve problems and overcome difficulties; our social connections; and our understanding of the world around us.

A mental disorder is an illness that affects the way people think, feel, behave, or interact with others. There are many different mental illnesses, and they have various symptoms that impact peoples’ lives in different ways.

Therefore, we use a variety of therapy options and a combination of tools that we believe will benefit your unique situation and suit your needs, including:

  • Aromatherapy
  • Virtual Reality Therapy
  • Youth Therapy Room
  • Meditation
  • Yoga Exercises
  • Mediation and Conflict Resolution
  • Spiritual Enrichment

NextGen has partnered with Elevation Enrichment Services, a practice dedicated to counseling individuals and families by providing unbiased therapy, assessment, and consultative services to assist in the treatment of emotional and behavioral symptoms.

As the rippling effects of NextGen’s and Elevation Enrichment’s work touch the wider community, we will partner with others to bring our methodology and experiences beyond the walls of our Center to provide churches, community groups, and other organizations with the information and strategies we learned and used to transform the lives of young people and their families.
