THOMPSON is contracted with all Managed Care Organizations in North Carolina.

Participants in the 2014 Duke TF-CBT Learning Collaborative

For children with severe mental health diagnoses, Psychiatric Residential Treatment Services provide an intensive clinical setting within the safe, child-friendly living environment of our Saint Peter’s Lane Campus.

The healing process begins through interactions with trained and committed Thompson staff, including individual psychotherapy sessions with licensed therapists and a child psychiatrist. Our spiritual education coordinator complements the clinical treatment by leading children toward trust and spiritual wholeness through a weekly chapel service and related programming.

Children begin to build healthy relationships, to trust adults and to respect themselves. In some cases, children are reunited with a biological family member. Other choices include appropriate placement within a foster setting, often ending in adoption.  In all cases, safe and loving environments are the primary consideration. To effectively heal psychological scars, the presence of a loving, supportive family is every bit as critical as the proper diagnosis and treatment.
