Do I need to live in the Brookfield area to visit The Loft?

No! We are not bound by any geographic area and welcome teens from everywhere.

 

Will I be forced to participate at The Loft?

We know that mental health support is not one size fits all, and we encourage all teens to participate of their own volition and in a way that best fits their needs.

 

Do you offer free therapy?

We do not offer ongoing therapeutic support, but we do offer free peer support seven days a week.

Parents don’t need to come with you, but they are welcome to wait in the lobby or meet with our family support specialists while you engage at The Loft.
