Clients Served: Adult clients experiencing severe and persistent mental illness and clients needing intensive services to remain stable out of the psychiatric hospital and in the community.
Description of Services Offered: Individual and group therapy, crisis drop-in and intervention, case management, peer support, payee-ship to manage finances, psycho-education, and recreation therapy.
Array of Services Provided: Services are offered flexibly with a high frequency of contact. In addition to therapy, we provide case management to help clients connect to vital resources such as housing and financial benefits, care coordination and collaboration with primary care providers and psychiatrists as well as liaison services to coordinate care with external agencies including psychiatric hospitals.
Staffing: Masters level therapists, a peer specialist, a payee-ship case manager, a hospital liaison, and administrative support staff. This placement would be a chance to work hands-on with challenging clients in a context of ample clinical support. The student will learn crisis management, risk assessment, individual/group therapy, hospitalization procedures, and be exposed to a cohesive, multidisciplinary team of psychiatrists, clinicians, case managers, nurses, and residential staff.
Values Guiding Service: We focus on whole person recovery and helping clients achieve their very best quality of life, which starts with keeping clients independent in the community and out of the hospital. We take a team approach to sharing the care and treatment of our clients. This requires us to be flexible and constantly on our toes and makes for a fast-paced treatment environment.
