MHS Behavioral Health is committed to exceeding our client’s expectations. The concierge outpatient Tele-Psychiatry model of care allows clients to remain in their homes and communities while receiving ongoing care and treatment. We offer clinical expertise and supportive therapy to help individuals suffering from acute and chronic mental health conditions such as anxiety, attention deficit disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive- compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, and other psychiatric illnesses. Many of these disorders have better outcomes when treated with a combination of therapy and medication.
The Psychiatric interview includes a complete medical history, including a description of the client’s overall physical health, any other illnesses or conditions present, current treatments, and lab tests. It incorporates the descriptions of behaviors, symptoms, and the effects of behaviors or symptoms on work performance, school performance, relationships, and interactions with others.
Psychiatric medications are prescribed to treat mental health disorders. They can relieve or potentially eliminate severe and disabling symptoms in people with mental health disorders. While the medications cannot cure the disorder, they can treat the symptoms, which helps people feel better and improve their quality of life.
Psychoeducation is used to assist people in understanding mental disorders and ways to maintain recovery. It involves teaching clients and their family members about mental health conditions, treatment options, and alternatives and recognizing the signs and symptoms. It focuses on preventing relapse so the individual can obtain treatment before their mental illness worsens or occurs again. This approach helps individuals better support their loved ones through treatment. It also reduces distress, confusion, and anxiety within the family, which can help the individual to recover.
Referrals to appropriate levels of care, including inpatient psychiatric hospitalization or partial hospitalization, are based on the severity of the client’s symptoms.
