Crisis Behavioral Health Services are designed to provide a continuum of crisis prevention, crisis response and post-intervention services, including suicide crisis response and services capable of addressing crisis related to substance abuse and intoxication. A culturally and linguistically sensitive assessment will be completed that incorporates the principles of trauma-informed care. This will result in the development of a person-centered and family-centered crisis plan with the individual, child/youth and family/caregivers to prevent and de-escalate future crisis situations.
Screening and assessment interventions are used to gather information for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to, determining level of care required, identifying risk and safety factors, making an appropriate diagnosis, and referral decisions. Screenings and assessments take into account an individual’s personal and cultural context.
Person and family-centered treatment planning is a collaborative process that promotes personal choice, self-help measures, the strengthening of natural supports, the use of education and interventions in natural settings, and the reduction of the utilization of institutional levels of care. Treatment plan goals and services utilize SAMHSA’s principles of trauma informed approaches.
Outpatient mental health and substance use services are designed treat an individual’s mental health and/or substance use disorder in a manner consistent with the individual’s phase of life and development, specifically considering children, adolescents, transition age youth, and older adults as distinct groups for whom life stage and functioning may affect treatment.
Primary care screening is a basic health assessment that measures specific health indicators and need for a physical exam or further evaluation by appropriate health care professionals. Health monitoring is the continued measuring of specific health indicators associated with increased risk of medical illness and early death.
Targeted Case Management services are intended to support the wellness and recovery goals of individuals with complex and/or chronic behavioral health issues and needs by implementing targeted interventions designed to provide timely, high-quality, and efficient care. This service addresses resource needs, such as food, housing, and shelter, which have not been met.
These services are designed to assist individuals to overcome mental health barriers that may have interfered with the person’s ability to function independently and perform normative adult roles in the community. The intent of PSR is to assist the individual to restore the individual’s functional level to the fullest possible by building and learning life skills.
Peer Support services are peer-delivered services with a rehabilitation and recovery focus. They are designed to promote skills for coping with and managing behavioral health symptoms while facilitating the utilization of natural resources and the enhancement of recovery-oriented principles (e.g. hope and self-efficacy, and community living skills). Peer support uses trauma-informed, non-clinical assistance to achieve long-term recovery from a behavioral health disorder.
Used to thoroughly meet veterans’ care needs, services are integrated, coordinated, and recovery-oriented incorporating current requirements of the Veteran Health Administration.
