Outpatient mental health service options include individual, family, couples, and group therapy, medication management, case management/skills training services, and psychological evaluations. Therapy is offered in a number of local schools as well as at agency offices while case management is provided in school, community, and home-based settings. Medication management and psychological evaluations are offered at agency offices.
Outpatient mental health services are designed to assist with concerns such as (but not limited to) the following:
- Marital/family or other interpersonal conflicts
- Parent-child relational conflicts
- Work performance issues
- Stress/anger management
- Physical or sexual abuse
- Anxiety or panic attacks
- Depression and/or suicidal thoughts
The case management program is designed to be an intensive treatment option for individuals who are at risk or in crisis due to mental health related issues. The goal of case management is to stabilize or improve social and behavioral functioning in the school, community, and home environments. Treatment focuses on developing problem-solving and coping skills, utilizing appropriate conflict resolution, modeling parental intervention techniques when relevant, and educating the family and essential others about mental health.
Typically, individuals must first be evaluated by a master’s prepared therapist or psychologist before initiating additional services such as, but not limited to, family and/or group therapy, medication management, case management, and psychological evaluations.
