Service Description
Community Support This is support provided more in the community than at the mental health center.  It can help you put skills you have learned into practice so you can live, work, learn and participate fully in your own community.
Psychosocial Rehabilitation (PSR) This service is provided in your mental health center building. You can think of PSR as a classroom for building skills to help you live, work, learn, and participate fully in your community.
Case Management Case management can connect you with the services you may need. This can be especially helpful when you are moving from a hospital or nursing home into the community. Mental health center staff can help you to find medical, child welfare, employment and other services you might need to live independently.
Therapy and Counseling This service involves treatment by a licensed clinician. He/she may help you to make changes in your feelings, thoughts, or actions. You may meet with the therapist face to face as an individual or with your family depending on your needs.
Crisis Intervention If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, your mental health center can help you to reduce symptoms, stabilize, and get back to feeling safe. For more information on what you can do to prevent and prepare for a crisis, see pages 30-34.
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) This intense service can help you if you are at a point where you have a high risk of frequent hospitalizations, jail or homelessness. ACT is designed as a short term way to get you back on track toward your goals while staying in the community and to help you reach a less intense level of service.
