Outpatient Mental Health ClinicOur services at the OMHC level are designed to promote mental health and improve functioning in children, youth, adults and families. In addition, our services are tools used to effectively decrease the prevalence and incidence of mental illness, emotional disturbance and social dysfunction. The responsibility for diagnostic and treatment services is vested in a multi-disciplinary team comprised of psychiatrists, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, marriage and family licensed therapists, public health educators and other mental health professionals. Our services at HHS include but not limited to diagnostic evaluation, family, group and individual therapies, medication services, crisis or emergency interventions. HHS makes every effort to respond flexibly to our client and is easily accessible to our clients. HHS, when appropriate, works in collaboration with schools, child welfare/foster system, and other child/family caring agencies. The services at HHS are provided to the general public without bias towards race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or sexual preference. HHS also prides itself in providing services that are culturally competent. Click on each service to read more about it.
Diagnostic Evaluation >>
All patients who are new to the Outpatient Center receive a diagnostic evaluation by a Board Certified Psychiatrist, a Psychologist, or a Clinical Social Worker or Counselor, all of whom are licensed and trained to complete such evaluations. The face-to-face screening assesses the individual’s strengths, available resources and treatment needs.
Individual and Family Therapy >>
These services are provided by licensed professionals such as Clinical Therapists and Social Workers. Therapy generally occurs weekly until sufficient progress has occurred to decrease the frequency of sessions. Anger and stress management, coping and problem-solving skills, social skills, improved self-esteem and self-control, improved familial relationships, and behavior management are among some of the common treatment goals worked on within the therapy sessions.
Individual Treatment Plan (ITP) >>
A treatment plan is developed in collaboration with the individual and parent/and or guardian.
- ITP includes the individual’s diagnosis, presenting problems, needs, strengths, treatment expectations and responsibilities
- Long term and short term goals in measurable terms and target dates for each goal
- Criteria for successful completion of treatment and reasons for continuing treatment. A crisis response plan and baseline/progress on objectives
Continuing Evaluation and Treatment >>
A contact note is completed after each visit describing the service delivered. Each month a progress summary note is completed that describes progress towards ITP goals and any changes in an individual’s status and if applicable suggested changes in treatment goals and services delivered.
