Laying the groundwork for a successful, happy life
Why Choose The Wave?
The Wave was created by a team that is passionate about Global Mental Health and determined to make a difference in the lives of teenagers and young adults who have additional needs.
Our programs are designed to create a life experience for young people and their families that connects the highest standards in medical care and psychiatric treatment with education, dynamic therapeutic practice and an international GAP-year experience.
Creating a Future Through Education
Therapeutic Boarding and Education
At The Wave, we understand the need to create a solid base to build a stable future, which is why education forms a central part of our core programs. We run the only Treatment Program to incorporate Personal Learning Plans for teenagers and young people in residential care.
However, education programs can only be successful if there is behavioural and mental health wellness and the first steps towards this lie in orientation and stability. That is why our clinical and medical teams ensure a sustained period of stability for all young people before starting any educational programs.
Making memories that last a lifetime
Experiences at The Wave
At The Wave we believe that treatment is a learning curve, a life experience and a big part in the process of transitioning from adolescence into adulthood.
Learning through experience, connecting with peers, leading and following instructions are all essential life skills. Acquiring knowledge and expertise allows young people to have a base from which they can approach social situations with increasing ease. Building trust-based friendships sets the scene for a future that is full of connection and social responsibility.
‘Experiences’ is one of the seven treatment elements in The Wave Programs and all our experiences are chosen to work within our young adult treatment plans.
