Crisis Treatment A crisis refers not to a traumatic event or experience, but to how an individual responds to the situation. The events that trigger this crisis can run the gamut of life experience, from developmental hurdles (such as going through puberty) to natural disasters to the death of a loved one. Crisis counseling can help individuals deal with the crisis by offering assistance and support.
When providing Mental Health Support Services, The Outreach Foundation shall have staff readily available 24/7/365 for emergency response. Our telephonic response to clients in crisis are "immediate". Face-to-face response will be made available within a two (2) hour window. Our On-call personnel have access to all consumer information relevant to services being offered.
Individual and Family Counseling Individuals, families, and group counseling is used to address and treat emotional and mental disorders, and to promote mental health. A variety of therapeutic techniques are used to address issues, including depression, addiction and substance abuse, suicidal impulses, stress, problems with self-esteem, and grief. The Outreach Foundation staff will often work closely with other mental health specialists, such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, psychiatric nurses, and school counselors in order to provide our client the best possible care. We link our clients with appropriate outpatient services for their individual and/or family therapy needs.
Case Management Activities Case Management is the coordination of community services for mental health patients by allocating a professional to be responsible for the assessment of need and implementation of care plans. It is usually required for individuals who have a serious mental illness and need ongoing support in areas such as housing, employment, social relationships, and community participation. This level of support is also suitable for service users with a major psychotic disorder. The Outreach Foundation staff assess, plan, implement, coordinate, monitor, refer, and evaluate all possible health options and services required to meet our clients' service needs.
Communication Skill Building Communication is essential for all individuals to make their needs, wants and ideas known. With a mental health diagnosis, communication skills may be delayed or wrought with difficulties. Developing skills to work with the communication deficits and delays in an individual improves the quality of their live. The Outreach Foundation assesses our clients current abilities and works with the child and family to develop a service plan focused on improving listening, problem-solving, anger management, and interpersonal interaction. Our Team Treatment meetings are held as determined by the clients needs. Team meeting involve the client, parent or legal guardian, and our professional support staff.
