Our Impact Program is designed to assist adults with severe mental illnesses. Mental illness can have a severe impact on a person interpersonally, vocationally, educationally and in their day-to-day lives. Our team provides support in each of these areas to enable individuals to stay at home and in their community.
We come into the home, school, job, public facility or wherever needed to provide support in areas including financial management, job skills, social skills and other important life skills. This may include a trip to the grocery store or a shift at an hourly job. We understand this is not an 8-5 job and provide support where and when needed.
At NEMHC, we’ve developed an entire team solely devoted to this program. Our medical staff plays a key role on this team as well by monitoring how medications affect behavior and side effects. Each support plan is as unique as the individual.
Individuals who have been diagnosed with the following mental illnesses may benefit from our Impact Program services: schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic and other severe anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
In addition to providing support to the affected individual we also provide therapy for family members. We use a holistic approach and touch all relationships. Loved ones aren’t necessarily equipped to manage the day-to-day physical, mental and emotional demands that may accompany caring for someone with a severe mental illness. We work with family members to provide the support they need as well. This may be in the form of individual counseling, couples therapy, family counseling or group therapy.
If your loved one is suffering from a severe mental illness please contact us to learn how we can help.
