Up to Me Newsletter

We've selected a new program name!

As you may be aware, we have recently redesigned our program materials. In an effort to  increase program reach, a name change has been a part of our re-branding. We surveyed 270 people –including parents, behavioral health specialists, and people with lived experience- regarding opinions on a new name.  This input, coupled with advice from SERVE, a local marketing company, led to this new name:

When using a tagline, it will be: 

Additional adaptations will follow a similar format. For example: Up to Me: Talking about Tourette’s Syndrome?

Please be in touch with any questions. And thank you for being HOP (now, Up to Me!) champions!

Up to Me Facilitator Spotlight

Rogers' Nashotah Program is a residential treatment program for high school-aged girls with complex mood disorders. Girls live on campus at Rogers' Oconomowoc location with a typical stay of 60-90 days. The foundation of care is dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), a treatment approach intended to build distress tolerance, improve emotional regulation, maintain safety, and teach non-judgmental personal acceptance and mindfulness. 

 Counselors in the Nashotah Program have been delivering the Up to Me program to girls in treatment since February 2018. Importantly, Up to Me tools and strategies incorporate skills taught in DBT, making the program a uniquely relevant way to hone skills learned in treatment. The Up to Me framework teaches girls how to decide who, what, when, and how to tell people about their mental health and/or treatment history once they leave residential care. 
Based on the positive reception from the girls and the counselors' affirmation that the program content helps girls prepare for discharge, we have developed a shortened version of Up to Me able to be used as a workbook by an individual. As this program adaptation is re-branded, we will make it available to all of our trained facilitators across the state. Look for this curriculum in our next newsletter!
