Mental Health Services

    Individual Counseling - Programs that offer personal therapeutic sessions in which the therapist works on a one-to-one basis with clients to help them resolve their mental, emotional or social problems.

    Family Counseling - Programs that offer therapeutic sessions that focus on the system of relationships and communication patterns among family members and which attempt to modify those relationships and patterns to achieve greater harmony. The therapist focuses on the family as a unit rather than concentrating on one of the members who is singled out as the person in need of treatment.

    Ex-Offender Counseling - Programs that provide emotional support, information and guidance for people who recently have been released from a correctional facility and are having difficulty coping with adjustment to life in the community.

    Anger Management - Programs that provide educational and/or therapeutic opportunities for people who want to learn how to deal with their anger in a positive way. Included are court-ordered and voluntary programs for people who are involved in domestic violence or child abuse as well as general workshops for people who are uncomfortable with the way they express their anger.

    County Mental Health Clinics - Provides clinical psychiatric evaluations and outpatient psychiatric day treatment including individual and group therapy, medication support, rehabilitation, service linkage and consultation and mental health plan development for people with serious and persistent mental illness who are experiencing functional impairment in the community or who are at risk of hospitalization. Also provides placement in specialized residential treatment facilities for people who do not require inpatient psychiatric hospitalization.

    Psychiatric Case Management - Programs that develop case plans for the evaluation, treatment and/or care of individuals who have mental, emotional or social concerns and need assistance in arranging for services.  Programs assess the individual's needs, coordinate the delivery of needed services, ensure that services are obtained in accordance with the case plan, and follow up and monitor progress.
