COMMUNITY PSYCHIATRIC & PSYCHOSOCIAL SKILL BUILDING
Community Psychiatric Support and Treatment (CPST) are goal-directed supports and solution-focused Interventions. These are intended to achieve identified goals or objectives as set forth in individualized treatment plans. CPST is a face-to-face intervention with the person present; however, family or other collaterals may also be involved.
Psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) services are designed to assist clients with compensating for or eliminating functional deficits, interpersonal, and/or environmental barriers associated with their mental illness. Activities included are intended to achieve previously identified goals or objectives as set forth in individualized treatment plans. The intent of PSR is to restore the fullest possible integration of our clients as active, productive members of their family, community and/or culture with the least amount of ongoing professional intervention. PSR is a face-to-face in person intervention. Services may be provided individually or in a group setting.
24/7 CRISIS INTERVENTION
Crisis intervention (CI) services are provided to client experiencing a psychiatric crisis. They are designed to interrupt and/or ameliorate a crisis experience, via a preliminary assessment, immediate crisis resolution, de-escalation, and referral and linkage to appropriate community services. CIs are put in place to avoid more restrictive levels of treatment.
The goals of CIs are symptom reduction, stabilization, and restoration to a previous level of functioning. All activities occur within the context of a potential or actual psychiatric crisis. CI is a face-to-face intervention and can occur in a variety of locations, including an emergency room or clinic setting, in addition to other community locations where the person lives, works, attends school and/or socializes.
REFERRAL & LINKAGE TO RESOURCES
You may need assistance in identifying and accessing resources to meet basic needs or accessing community-based support services. CCS works with other local and national organizations to improve outcomes for our clients and their families. We provide referrals to resource programs as well as facilitate connections between programs that serve the same clientele. Some examples are: Housing, employment, etc.
