Addressing Various Mental Health Conditions

Outpatient SERVICES

Outpatient Mental Health Services address mental health symptoms, diagnoses, and associated functional impairments. We help manage co-occurring health and substance use conditions that interact with and affect the mental health presentation, and provide support for psychosocial adjustments related to life cycle issues, including birth and death, trauma, aging; marriage, divorce, parenting; intergenerational conflicts, reintegration challenges for service members and veterans; and adult, child, and family relations.

Purpose

Individuals who receive Outpatient Mental Health Services that target goal-directed interventions for diagnosable conditions make gains in symptom reduction, improved self-management, and restored or enhanced daily functioning.
