MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT
Mental Health Support services are training and support services designed to enable individuals with significant psychiatric functional limitations to achieve and maintain community stability and independence in the most appropriate, least restrictive environment. The recommended age to receive the service will increase from 16 to 18 years of age as this service is focused on assisting clients to live independently. Persons under 18 may still be eligible for Mental Health Support Serviced if medical necessity criteria are met. This service is not a substitution for mental health counseling or psychotherapy. GYG aims to provide instruction and counseling to individuals who, due to mental illness, would otherwise have trouble maintaining community stability and independence. Focus areas include daily living, community resources, health and safety, financial management and social supports. All GYG services are individualized, and provided both within the client’s home and their community.
Targeted Group: Adults (16 and up)
