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.
KY Impact Services
KY Impact services deliver intensive family-based services for youth with emotional disabilities and/or substance abuse. These services include case management, medication management, and in-home services for individuals, groups, and families. Case managers can provide these community, family, and peer support services at home, school, or a Seven Counties Services location. A smooth transition into adulthood is more likely by ensuring strong coordination between all children serving systems, including educational, legal, medical, social, and behavioral health.
Seven Counties Services works with schools across Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer, and Trimble counties to provide ongoing therapy to students to improve attendance, behavioral skills, social skills, and academic achievement. Seven Counties Services also partners with schools to provide additional behavioral health and substance use resources.
