Mental Health Services

Each client will be assessed for mental health issues.   Clients will be referred to appropriate mental health professionals for further assessments, diagnoses, and treatment. Clients will be able to participate in support groups for mental health issues. Clients will participate in monthly sessions with on-staff Psychologist for therapy. The psychologist will work with the client’s mental health provider to assist with treatment. Clients who are prescribed medication will be monitored for compliance by nursing staff. Psychologist will assess effectiveness of medication and determine if medication is therapeutic.

Emmanuel House acknowledges and understands that a great deal of our population will have a co-occurring disorder and each of these disorders needs to be addressed in order for effective intervention. In addition to the substance dependency programming, we offer mental health interventions for clients who have been identified as having a severe mental health diagnosis including, but not limited to schizophrenia, bi polar, major depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other identified mental health categories.
