Our Mental Health Professionals often work closely with other professionals including but not limited to psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, case managers, and school counselors.

Our Staff will regard the legal/ethical standards of the community in which they work, especially those which may affect their ability to deliver and/or contract for professional services, recognizing such legal/ethical standards on their part may damage their professional credibility, injure their own name, and/or the reputation of the agency, and therefore, substantially affect their ability to provide services. Professional Psychiatric and Behavioral Services will recognize the importance of due process and consider employees as innocent of legal/ethical violations until proven otherwise.
MENTAL HEALTH MODALITIES:
Individual and Family Therapy

Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services (PSR)
- Psychosocial Rehabilitation Services are intended to restore a recipient’s skills and abilities essential for independent living. Activities include: development and maintenance of necessary daily living skills; food planning and preparation; money management; maintenance of the living environment; and training in appropriate use of community services. This service combines daily medication use, independent living and social skills training, housing services, prevocational and transitional employment rehabilitation training, social support, and network enhancement to recipients and their families.
Mental Health Targeted Case Management (TCM)
- Mental health targeted case management services is to assist recipients in gaining access to needed medical, social, educational, and other services.
- The primary goal of mental health targeted case management is to optimize the functioning of recipients who have complex needs by coordinating the provision of quality treatment and support services in the most efficient and effective manner.
- Services and service frequency should accurately reflect the individual needs, goals, and abilities of each recipient and must not simply reflect the Medicaid maximum allowable for the service.
- Psychotherapy is a modality in which a group of patients meet to describe and discuss their problems together under the supervision of a therapist. We meet patients, depending on the nature of their problems to addressing their concerns and making positive changes in their life.
Therapeutic Behavioral On-Site Services For Children And Adolescents (TBOS)
- Therapeutic behavioral on-site services are designed to assist children who have complex needs and their families in an effort to prevent the need for a more intensive, restrictive behavioral health placement. The process must be driven by assessment of the individual needs and strengths of each child and family, and be developed and directed by a treatment team.
