Mental health recover services

At Appleseed Community Mental Health Center, our caring professionals are invested in your success. We offer the following services and steps to recovery:

Mental Health Assessment: The first step in getting treatment for mental health involves an accurate assessment. Our clinicians will walk you through a thorough evaluation to determine what course of treatment is necessary and will best promote your success. We’ll look for areas of concern, set small goals that will move you forward on the recovery road, and get you functioning and able to enjoy life again, while emphasizing the strengths you have and positive things to come out of your growth.

Crisis Intervention: At any time during your treatment should you need immediate access to a counselor, you can call our crisis intervention hotline. Appleseed’s caring therapists are available 24 hours a day to respond to emergency situations via phone, and can meet with you in person if necessary.

Individual and Family Counseling: Get one-on-one attention from an Appleseed psychiatric professional for help with depression, addiction, and more. Families are encouraged to get counseling together to address how one individual member’s mental health issue affects the rest of the family, and to work through treatment options, behavior and recovery.

Group Counseling: An affordable option for individuals seeking therapeutic treatment, group counseling at Appleseed focuses on the individual’s needs through group sessions, led by one of our caring counselors.

Pharmacological Management Services: Mental health management begins with effective treatment options through medication. Work with one of our board-certified physicians who is trained in how to use medications to treat psychiatric conditions. Our physicians also work with patients to minimize symptoms, and develop a plan for lifetime medication management.

Community Psychiatric Support (Individual and Group): Get comprehensive support in a community psychiatric setting. Your treatment plan will follow some or all of these steps:

  • Assess your needs.
  • Work on developing skills.
  • Identify other health symptoms or conditions that may be the cause or root of the problem.
  • Monitor your symptoms.
  • Get assistance with crisis management.
  • Use your Appleseed counselor as an advocate in school, work or family settings.
  • Work with the family to educate them about mental health issues.
  • Work to eliminate barriers that stop you from functioning independently.
  • Get help integrating into social situations.

Supported Employment: Mental health often interferes with job skills and maintaining employment. Our caring professionals will work with you to help you gain employment and develop the skills you need to stay employed.

Adult Counseling Services

Adult Counseling Services

At Appleseed Community Mental Health Center, our professional counselors help clients embrace the freedom that individual counseling services offer.  With counseling, people successfully learn to overcome life issues that include stressful relationships, chronic worry, sleep problems, work performance issues, and depression.

Appleseed’s caring counselors offer comprehensive counseling services that includes assessment, diagnosis and a treatment plan, offered in a safe, trusting environment. Our Center is solution-focused, and we help individuals suffering from mental health problems with at-risk behaviors and challenging relationships achieve optimal levels of functioning in all aspect of their lives, from work to home.

Counseling help

Working with a counselor, patients get treatment for mental health issues and symptoms like:

  • Depression.
  • Sleep issues.
  • Lack of enjoyment for life.
  • Deep-rooted, stressful memories.
  • Challenging family relationships.
  • Chronic anxiety.
  • Lack of motivation.
  • Job challenges.
  • Suicidal thoughts.

Adult counseling services

During counseling sessions, your caring mental health counselor will help you explore behaviors, as well as feelings and ideas, that are negatively influencing your mental health, and identify methods for behavior modification. Counselors may also identify key events from your past, such as a divorce or family member death that affect your mental health today, and help you work through these events to regain control over your life.

Counseling techniques

Depending on the scope of your problem, our counselors may use therapy techniques to identify unconscious conflicts of which you’re not even aware,  that arise as emotional problems in the present. Resolution and healing is accomplished by talking through the experience, and using coping techniques and skills for solving problems.

Alternatively, your therapist may use interpersonal methods to help you cope with relational problems influencing mental health. This strategy includes strategies like improving communication skills, boosting self-esteem and combating depression rooted in issues like experiencing the death of a friend or family member, losing a job, becoming socially isolated, or having relationships in serious conflict.
