Adult Mental Health
The Services to Adults with Mental Illness Program provides an array of services for clients diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness. Services are provided based on the level of care and support needed for the individual as determined in the person centered planning process. Services are provided by caring and skilled staff. Natural supports and family are welcomed into the planning process. In late 2008, the Community Crisis Response Team (CCRT) was established. Core principles for CCRT include community outreach, early intervention, stabilization and treatment in the least restrictive environment, coordination of care, and effective collaboration with all community stakeholders.
Psychiatrists, nurses, and case managers are skilled in providing services to meet the unique needs of consumer team participants with severe and persistent mental illness within their team of service.
