Multidisciplinary TeamEach program is operated by an experienced team of mental health professionals, including nurses, social workers, expressive therapists, licensed mental health counselors, and psychiatrists. The program provides psychiatric evaluation, consultation, and medication services on a case-by-case basis. Beginning with each client's admission process, the partial hospitalization team closely monitors the individual's mental status and designs individualized treatment plans and crisis intervention strategies when needed. Each client is assigned a primary treatment coordinator who coaches them on effectively utilizing the program's services, and acts as a liaison to other care providers. The team works closely with primary care physicians and home health nursing providers.
