Mental Health Compassionate Care Through compassionate care and clinical excellence, we are dedicated to serving the behavioral health needs of our community. Our Outpatient Services can assist individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, behavioral problems, poor impulse control, and thoughts of harming oneself or others. If you are not in crisis, you can walk in to our Outpatient Services, Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m. where we begin with a comprehensive assessment of individual needs and strengths. Our treatment team of psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and counselors develop individualized, person-centered plans addressing the specific needs of individuals to assist in meeting their recovery goals. Case Management (CM) Case Management serves individuals with severe and persistent mental illness as well as those individuals suffering from a mental illness combined with substance abuse issues (dually diagnosed). Adult Case Management consists of two different types of service: Case Management and Psychosocial Rehabilitation Individual (PSR-I.) Assertive Community Treatment Our Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) program offers individuals with Severe and Persistent Mental Illness (SPMI) highly specialized and personal care. Professionals with a background in social work, nursing, psychiatry, substance use treatment, and case management, along with peer support and vocational specialists are available 24/7 for the individual to help in all areas of life and offer a person-centered approach to care. Treatment occurs inside the person’s home or community with a goal of providing comprehensive treatment and assistance to help individuals become self-sufficient. Group Counseling Individuals develop tools to achieve independent living through skills training. Topics addressed include coping, communication, social skills, empowerment, healthy living, and recovery/wellness. Accountability Courts Mental health and drug court groups are skills and counseling groups specifically for individuals enrolled in court-mandated treatment. These programs were established to provide effective alternatives to sentencing for nonviolent offenders and to assist individuals on a path to recovery. Peer Support Our Peer Support Program provides structured activities that encourage socialization, recovery, wellness, self-advocacy, and the development and enhancement of independent living skills. The program provides psychosocial education and practical training for individuals to achieve successful life paths of their choosing. Permanent Supportive Housing Permanent Supportive Housing is a program that provides a long-term housing option to homeless individuals (and their families) whose mental health, addictive disease, and/or an intellectual/ developmental disability has made it difficult to maintain/establish a permanent residence. The reduced rent ensures that an individual’s income is able to provide a home and is calculated at 30% of the tenants adjusted gross income. Mental Health Supported Supported Employment offers case management service to individuals who wish to seek employment. Services are delivered in the community and on job sites. This important program enables individuals to succeed in finding and maintaining jobs.

ICM staff work with individuals to determine and achieve goals in their recovery plan. The program promotes illness self-management and recovery and coordinates continuity of care.

Family therapy is used to assist individuals in problem-solving skills that impact relationships with family members. Sessions strive to improve communication and provide conflict resolution.
