Outpatient Services utilizes a strengths-based approach to care for the individual impacted by mental illness. The compassion we have for our clients helps to empower and further connect them within their community. With the range of person-centered services provided in the same building, we are able to collaborate with our staff of psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, therapists and nurses when it comes to treatment.
We provide psychiatric rehabilitation care services to individuals suffering from severe, persistent mental illness and individuals with a co-occurring Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. Our skills-based program empowers clients to reach their individualized recovery goals through group activities and resource management. To achieve true rehabilitation in our clients, we focus on the five domains of psychiatric rehabilitation (living, learning, socializing, self-maintenance and working).
Wellness Recovery Team
Our Wellness Recovery Team is a resource for adults with a SPMI or Serious & Persistent Mental Illness that is co-occurring with chronic physical illness. With our assistance, our clients become confident, independent individuals empowered to maintain their physical, mental, and emotional health – overall wellness.
Mental Health & Aging
Our Mental Health & Aging Program provides guidance and support to the aging residents of Gracedale Nursing Home as they face the challenges of day-to-day life while struggling with mental illness. Our professional team also trains nursing home staff on recognizing and understanding mental health illnesses.
Our THRIVE team assists those incarcerated in Northampton County Prison to successfully transition back to civilian living, through connection to community resources & learned independence. Program consumers will continue to receive support and assistance upon release.
Our STARTS team provides individuals released from Northampton County Prison with temporary housing and a structured re-entry program, in addition to THRIVE support, for successful reintegration back into society.
Meeting in groups, whether a support based or therapeutic focus, allows participating individuals to strengthen emotional skills, including relationship skills, provide a ‘safe’ space to voice thoughts, lead to greater self-realization, and reduce isolation. The group can provide a sounding board to work and grow with.
We believe that mental health focused community outreach and collaboration with other partners is important to build a stronger organization, reduce stigma and raise understanding about mental illness, reach high risk populations who do not have access to services and utilize alternative and holistic resources to improve the quality of life for individuals and our community.
