Adult Mental Health Community-Based Services
Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
The Assertive Community Treatment or ACT Team helps individuals with severe mental illnesses who experience repeated homelessness, incarceration, or institutionalization and need more than traditional outpatient services. The ACT team comes directly to the client, whether it is in the client’s home, place of work, or another place in the community. Services are flexible and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These services include case management, therapy, housing, supported employment, and more. All clients receiving ACT services work with an entire team of professionals. This team includes a nurse, psychiatrist, social worker, and case manager that work on a schedule that meets their needs.
Comprehensive Community Support Services
We provide in-home and community-based support services as identified in the client’s individualized recovery and treatment plan. The delivery of these services may include training, cueing, supervising, teaching, and modeling behaviors and processes needed to be successful in the community. Core service areas include routine household care and maintenance activities, emotional regulation and skills intervention, crisis coping skills intervention, and interpersonal skills intervention.
Criminal Justice and Jail Diversion
These services intervene in the court system in Jefferson County on behalf of adults with behavioral health needs to help ensure that these individuals receive appropriate treatment versus jail time.
Homeless Outreach Team
Seven Counties Services partners with the Louisville Metro Coalition for the Homeless and the Department for Behavioral Health to engage people who have a mental illness or substance use disorders and are homeless. Our team of caring professionals helps individuals obtain access to services and additional community-based resources.
The first episode of psychosis is when a person experiences the symptoms of a mental illness, such as Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, and Brief Psychotic Disorder, among other disorders. As a result, the time after these episodes can be very frightening, confusing, and distressing. IHOPE supports these individuals aged 15-30 using evidence-based practices and services such as psychoeducation, family education, supported employment, peer support, safety planning, case management, occupational therapy, and outreach services.
Peer Support Services
Peer support services are services provided by resilient individuals who have a diagnosis of a serious mental illness and/or addiction issues and are in recovery. Peer Support Specialists help others manage their recovery, build self-advocacy skills and achieve their own successes.
Our PeerFIt consumer-run health and wellness service provides a culture built on hope and geared towards person-centered, strength-based recovery. Members of PeerFit receive access to the PeerFit gym, mindfulness and meditation groups, and plenty of peer support.
Recovery Zone is a partial-day service that helps clients who have severe and persistent mental illnesses thrive in their daily lives. Morning and afternoon sessions provide a meal and multiple group options. Sessions offer lessons on life skills such as budgeting and nutrition, emotional regulation skills, self-resilience skills, esteem-building skills, and decision-making skills, along with healthy relationship and communication techniques.
